Isaiah 58.6-12

Psalms 112

1 Corinthians 2.1-16

Matthew 5.13-20


Dear friends,

Riches, power and control are valued highly in our world. But as we hear in this Sunday’s Gospel Jesus draws on little things to teach deeper values, in this case, salt and light.

Salt preserves food: in the hands of a skilled cook it adds flavour to food. But its work is hidden. As salt of the earth we can be effective in bringing more taste to life for others.

Light does not change a room: it enables us to see what is in it. It helps us appreciate what is good and beautiful, just as it facilitates avoiding pitfalls.


We are children of the light: our lives are illumined by Jesus, the light of the world (John 8:12). This light helps us to see the hidden hope of glory that is in us.


So we can rejoice even in the darkness of the world.

Peace and Grace to you.


Fr Ron.
