Spirituality of the Readings

John Foley, S. J.

Becoming Ourselves

This Spirit is identical with God. You and I are to be at one with this presence. Becoming myself means becoming what I was made to be: a home for the Spirit of Jesus and of God.


In Exile

Ron Rolheiser, OMI

To Live in the Light

Spiritual health lies in honesty and transparency and so we live in the light when we are willing to lay every part of our lives open to examination by those who need to trust us.


Glancing Thoughts

Eleonore Stump

Salt and Light

Nobody makes salt for dinner. We put salt on the chicken, but the chicken is the dinner. The chicken tastes better if we salt it; and enjoying the chicken, not the salt, is what we are after. Light is like this, too.


The Perspective of Justice

Gerald Darring

Light For The World

Christianity is about light. Just as Jesus is light to the world, so his church is to be light in a world of darkness.


Discussion Questions

Anne Osdieck

Light and Salt

Using human wisdom alone, can we see how the crucifixion could triumph over sin and death? If no, then what allows us to see beyond human appearances?
