Jesus said to his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its flavour, how can it be made salty again?” (Matthew 5:13)
The phrase, “salt of the earth,” is still in use today. It means to give honour or thanks to someone who has done well. The disciples were doing Jesus proud!
How about me?
Lord Jesus, help me to use your graces and blessings to their full. May I see only the work that you have placed in my hands and the rewards of eternal joy glorifying you in Heaven.
Prayer: Priests and Religious
St Paul, great convert and Apostle,
guide all priests and religious.
Help them realise that their actions
speak louder than any words.
Teach them to use their talents
to convey God’s message
but, to rely above all,
on the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
