You are the light of the world.  A city built upon a mountain cannot be hidden from view.  – Mt 5:14

Reflection. What an astonishing statement!  And yet Jesus proclaimed it.  You and I are like beacons of light in a world of darkness.  We live in what Pope John Paul II called the culture of death.  Let us all combine our efforts to be a force for life.  It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.

Prayer. Lord, I am ablaze with Your Light.  Let my light shine for all to see, so that I may bear good fruit for all eternity.
