Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

June 7, A.D. 2005

2 Corinthains 1:18-22
Psalm 119:129-133,135
Mark 5:13-16

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

" 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.
Just so, your light must shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds
and glorify your heavenly Father." (Matthew 5: 15-16)

Isnıt it wonderful how the Lord gives us such great examples in our Christian lives? Our recently departed Holy Father, John Paul II is a perfect example of what our Lord was speaking about in todayıs gospel. He never wavered from the true teachings of the church no matter how controversial. He traveled the world spreading the good news and preaching peace and sound Catholic teaching. He truly was the city on the mountain that could not be hidden.

But the Lordıs commands in todayıs gospel are not meant only for popes. Theyıre meant for all of us. Granted, we all cannot fly to foreign lands to spread the word and preach what is right. However, we can do it easily in our homes, our places of work by giving good example in our daily lives. Our light must shine, so others can see.
