Do you think those old ladies in the church are ‘salt of the earth’ people?” Mary asked her son Patrick. “Maybe, but when I hear them complaining it makes me wonder if they’ve lost the saltiness. I prefer to look at the SVP who you don’t see in church all the time but are out there doing stuff for others.” “Maybe the light of the world people are those who lead the organisations helping others, or teaching. I also think bishop Joseph is one of those.”
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste how shall its saltiness be restored? You are the light of the world, a city set on a hill cannot be hidden. From Matt 5:13-16.
Pope Francis. We are called to bear witness to a constantly new way of living the Gospel. Let us not allow ourselves to be robbed of community! EG 92
