Fifth Sunday after Epiphany

Gospel: Matthew 5:13-20

“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot. “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Almighty Father,

In this walk, within the valley of the shadows, where unjust deeds in the name of religion, politics, and social belief tests the bonds between nations, untethering ties and creating discord throughout our world, invites uncertainty, doubt, and despair as humanities’ direction.  

Father, keep us on the path of Thy light, and with our eyes directed in faith, hope, and love; for the darkness of these iniquities are ephemeral, serving in the decadence and ruin of the vessels in which they are held. Whereas, hearts filled with virtues of kindness and compassion shall endear, thrive, and be ever-lasting. We ask this in the name of Jesus, whose walk has shown us the way to a life worth living.
