light to all in the house

February 9, 2020 4:00 am

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.” (MT 5: 14-15)

“You are the light of the world,” even if limited only to our houses (which generally never happens, because we have many more “worlds” to live there). But even our house is a place where our light is so important for our children. The light coming from our love, from the respect we express to our spouses, from our daily/weekly/monthly and yearly rituals are the extremely important example we give to our children to inspire them to start one day their independent lives as givers of self, not demanders. 

“I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
