On Today’s Gospel

It is the nature of sin to remain hidden for as long it can. We do not want our wrong doings to be made known. Or the fact that we could do good but refused to do them for selfish reasons. For most it does not even come to mind that they felt no shame committing the sin but are ashamed when it comes to light.

As for those who walk in the light of Christ. Such is the light that it cannot be contained. It shines forth from within and illumines the hearts and minds of all that it touches. It brings to light that which seeks to remain hidden; It transforms the once dark, ugly into bright and beautiful.

Lord Jesus I want to walk in Your light always, help me so that I may bring Your light to all. Amen

FIRST READING
Proverbs 3:27–34

GOSPEL
Luke 8:16–18

Jesus said to the crowd:
“No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”
