Lectio Divina: 5th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A

Salt and Light: Taste of the Earth and Light of the World


By Monsignor Francesco Follo (thanks to Zenit.org)

In the early centuries, persecuted Christians were brought into the Colosseum for the amusement of the ancient Romans who wanted to experiment strong magnified emotions. Torn to pieces by the lions, the martyrs were the "salt” for the palate, for which the spectator people were eager.  The crucifixes on burning wood were torches of "light” for the greedy eyes of the public. The pagans of the time, but also those of today, wanted a show with lights and exciting flavors.

     Then, the Christians came "on stage" not as actors, but as martyrs knowing to be spectacle to the angels and to the world.[3] I would also add that they were also visible to God, whose " eyes are always on the righteous " (Ps 33/34, 16) and therefore in the first place on the martyrs,[4] whose blood was the seed of other Christians, an offering of freedom and a sign of hope that becomes a reality.

      In fact the martyrs are par excellence the salt and the light of the world. Of course they were so in the heroic way, but we too are called to be witnesses (the Greek word "martyr" means witness) without worrying about herculean deeds. This is not about doing extraordinary things. It is a matter of salt, to be salt that gives flavor. The salt is the capacity to suffer, the sign of the Covenant. The salt shows an adult faith that does not flee in front of the cross, that has patience in suffering, that understands the sense it of, that sees, transfigured in death, resurrection and life.

      The method of Christian testimony is dictated and illustrated by the heart of Christ that, pierced, immediately responds with blood and water and with a love that goes to the end. For this reason, the paradigm and the fulfillment of the Christian testimony is martyrdom. Martyrdom contradicts the logic of the world, because the martyr responds to the fear of death that hates life with a love for life not afraid to die for it because the life of the martyr is the risen Christ. Christ has conquered death and sin. Martyrdom today, as always, is the greatest Cultural Revolution that can happen. The martyr, in itself, is an eliminated witness, a deleted witness. But in the logic of the cross the elimination accentuates the power of the testimony and the expression of charity. The Christian martyr is indeed the icon of the heart of Christ who, hated and pierced, exceeds in the charity of forgiveness, the gift of life and mercy. The martyr becomes not only a witness of Christ's love, but also of the excess of this love in a superabundance of charity and gratuity, which spills over the edge of death and hate.

     Let's look as closely as we can to Christ on the Cross. If we are not standing next to the cross like Mary and John, "at least" let’s embrace the foot of the Cross of the Savior as did Mary Magdalene so that we are transformed in Him and He lives in us.

     By the acceptance of our daily cross, our life polishes, crops and sizes all that in us is an obstacle to our adherence to Him.  For this reason it is in weaknesses, hardships and failures that the mission for which we were born is fulfilled. Just when we are nothing the power of God explodes in us. Let’s not despise anything then of our sufferings, anxieties, failures and frailties. It is in those moments that we are salt, light and yeast. This is because we are what we are: poor clay in the creative hands of God. It is enough to have a total and constant abandonment to God who works in us and with our small or great suffering, turns on the light for the world.

     Jesus speaks in simple terms, starts from the everyday experiences that everyone can understand and, therefore, also uses the images of salt and light. Salt in those days allowed keeping food and it was a symbol of loyalty and continuity; light made life possible and it was its symbol.

2) The Christian identity.

     “You are the salt ... you are the light ... “. Jesus first announces the new identity given by God to those who listen to him and follow him. His disciples and all Christians are now, and not by their own choice or merit, light and salt for all mankind.

     In this identity of Christians it is written a task, a mission, not as a duty that is added after or from the outside, but as a natural consequence of what we are.  As it is for salt and light, we are for the entire world a sign that God exists and is the Father, and that Christ is the incarnated Light, which makes man the light of the eyes and the heart.

      In saying "You are the salt of the earth," Jesus tells us that all human nature corrupted by sin has become tasteless, but through our ministry of testimony, the grace of the Holy Spirit will regenerate and preserve the world. For this reason the Savior teaches us the virtues of the Beatitudes, the ones that are the most necessary and the most effective for us that want to look like Him.  The one who is meek, humble, merciful doesn’t confine in him the good works that he has done. He instead makes these beautiful springs gush also for the good of others. The one, who has a pure heart, is a peacemaker and suffers persecution because of truth, is the person who devotes his life for the good of all. If we melt like salt, we give flavor to the life of the world and we build a culture of life and a civilization of love.‬‬‬‬

      When the salt dissolves in the food, this one will now have taste. When Christ dies, the humanity is reconciled to God, who gives meaning to life, which then assumes fullness of meaning and taste along with safe direction.

     The Christian who becomes a witness and therefore a martyr, does not rebel in front of the suffering and the injustice that he suffers. From him the world receives a credible sign of eternal life (in fact one can’t accept death if he does not have within him the fullness of life) and every work and action are purified. The Christian life becomes a liturgy in which, through it, Christ offers men toGod after having enlightened them and purified their actions.

      3) The Martyr, the light of a friend who bears witness to the true Light.

     It is true: it seems that violence, totalitarianism, persecution and blind brutality will prove stronger silencing the voice of the witnesses of the faith, who can appear as the defeated of history. But the risen Jesus illuminates our fragile testimony and makes us understand the meaning of martyrdom.

     In the defeat and in the humiliation of those who suffer because of the Gospel acts a force that the world does not know: “When I am weak - says the apostle Paul - then I am strong" (2 Cor 12:10).

     It is the power of love, defenseless and victorious even in defeat. It is the force that challenges and triumphs over death.

     “You are the light of the world." So Jesus said to his disciples, and so He repeats to us, his disciples today. One is no light, if he is not in love: "He who loves his brother abides in the light” says St. John, and if we are in the light, this one illuminates more the needs of others. Jesus is identified with the poor and for the Christians this gives a new light on the reality of the poor. Jesus who pronounces over the bread the words: “This is my Body” said these same words also of the poor: “You did it to me." And it is as if He says "That beggar, in need of a little of bread, the poor man who stretches out his hand, that’s me." Jesus asks us to have this attitude: to help the needy to be the light of the world. In a humanity which is dominated by indifference and selfishness, Jesus asks us to love to be light. He teaches that love is such as to illuminate the lamp on the lamp post. In a humanity mired in a vacuum and that constantly challenges death, salt is needed to give back to her the flavor and the enjoyment of life. No one eats one tablespoon of salt, but puts it in the food to make it tastier. We must not love only ourselves and become selfish and self-centered, but we must put our love in others. It is with mutual love that life acquires taste, meaning and gives joy and happiness.

      In the Old Testament the prophet Isaiah reveals the concrete way of being light: through orderly effective and concrete charity that bends toward the poor and the suffering: " If you remove the yoke from among you, the accusing finger, and malicious speech; if you lavish your food on the hungry and satisfy the afflicted; then your light shall rise in the darkness, and your gloom shall become like midday (Isaiah 58: 9-10).

     In the friendly light of us Christian, men find the true light: the light of true life.

4) The martyrdom of virginity.

     All our lights are turned on in the martyrdom of the Virgin Mary at the foot of the Cross and, of course, in the martyrdom which was the source: the martyrdom of Christ the Light.

      Christ calls everyone to be witness of this life. A life in which every moment , even the most hidden, simple and trivial, is a good  and beautiful work of God in us  so that men, looking at us , can give glory to God and so that blasphemy against the name of God spoken by many in front of death , is converted into a blessing .

     In this the Consecrated Virgins are of example.  By offering their virginity they become a special ostensory of Christ like the Virgin Mary. These women are martyrs on the model of Mary, Virgin and Mother, because virginity is not to give up on love but to give oneself completely to Love, to God-Charity, in whose heart all are welcome. They show that by living a virginal vocation one arrives to the transfiguration of oneself and of the relationships with others lived in the same way as Our Lady lived them. They remind to all the Christian the vocation to be the intact dwelling place of God.

 

PASTORAL LETTER OF THE BISHOP OF PASIG: YEAR OF THE LAITY

The Roman Catholic Bishop of Pasig

 

LAIKO NG PASIG PRESENSYA NG DIYOS SA DAIGDIG

“Dapat ninyong paliwanagin ang inyong ilaw sa harap ng mga tao

Upang luwalhatian ang inyong Amang nasa langit”. (Mateo 5:16)

 

 

Minamahal kong Sambayanan ng Diyos ng Diyosesis ng Pasig,

 

Kapayapaan mula sa Panginoong Hesukristo, ang Prinsipe ng Kapayapaan!

 

Buong galak kong ipinahahayag sa inyo ang taong 2014 bilang “Year of the Laity” o “Taon ng Laiko.” Habang naghahanda tayo sa ika-500 taon ng pagdating ng Kristiyanismo sa ating bayan, nagtakda ang mga Obispo ninyo ng iba’t ibang paksa bawat taon (“Live Christ, Share Christ,” CBCP Exhortation on the Era of the New Evangelization, July 23, 2012). Noong isang taon ay “Year of Integral Faith Formation” na napaloob sa mas malawak na “Year of Faith” o “Taon ng Pananampalataya”  ng buong Simbahan sa buong daigdig. Naging makabuluhan ang nagdaang taon dahil sa “National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary,” tuwing unang Sabado ng buwan. Sa tulong ng Kalinis-linisang Puso ni Maria, bawat Pilipino ay nagkaroon ng pagkakataong maunawaan, maisapuso at maisabuhay ang pananalig sa Diyos.

 

Ngayong “Taon ng Laiko” hangad ng inyong mga Obispo na muling tuklasin ng lahat ng laiko ang kanilang katauhan bilang binyagan na isinasabuhay ang kanilang bokasyon at misyon ng pagka – PARI, pagka – PROPETA at pagka – HARING LINGKOD sa Simbahan at lipunan. Ito ang biyayang tinanggap natin mula sa Diyos sa Binyag, pinagtibay sa Kumpil at pinalakas sa Banal na Eukaristiya.

 

Pagnilayan natin ang “Taon ng Laiko” sa tulong ng ilang laikong huwaran sa pagsasabuhay ng biyaya ng kanilang pagiging binyagan. Sa loob ng aking pagpa – pastol sa Diyosesis ng Pasig, tatlong laikong Katoliko ang nagsisilbing inspirasyon sa akin.

 

Ang una ay si Miss San Juan na madalas kong nakikita sa pagdiriwang kon gn Misa kapag Linggo ng umaga sa ating katedral. Mahigit siyamnapung taong gulang na at naka – ‘wheel chair” kapag nagsisimba si Miss San Juan. Nasabi nga po ng aking ina na naging guro pa niya ito sa high school. Nakakatawag pansin sa akin ang taimtim nyang debosyon sa Banal na Misa at taimtim na pananalangin pagkatapos ng Misa. Kahit hirap na ang kanyang katawan dala ng kanyang katandaan at kapansanan para pumunta pa sa simbahan para magsimba at magdasal ay buong tapat at tiyagang ginagawa ito, patunay ng pagsasabuhay ng kanyang pagka – PARI bilang binyagan. Dinalaw ko nga siya noong nakaraang Pasko sa kanyang bahay. Hiniling ko sa kanyang ipagdasal ako at lahat ng pari ng ating diyosesis. Binigyang – diin ko sa kanya na napakabisa ng pagdarasal nya at pagsa-sakripisyo niya para mapabanal kaming mga pari.

 

Ang ikalawa ay si Ka Luring na bantog na katekista mula sa St. Michael Parish, Hagonoy. Batang Pari pa po ako nang nakilala ko si Ka Luring. Pumanaw siya halos tatlong taon na ang nakaraan. Nagsilbi siyang inspirasyon sa akin dahil isa siyang tapat na taga-pangaral ng salita ng Diyos at ng katuruan ng Simbahan. Kahit pagod na pagod siya at walang pera, hindi ito naging hadlang sa pagtuturo niya sa “public school” at mga mumunting pamayanan. Usapang nga naming mga pari noon, kapag kailangan niya ng tulong ng pari para sa Misa o sa Kumpisal, isang paki usap lang niya ay di mo na siya matatanggihan kahit punong-puno ang iskedyul mo. Tunay ngang naging inspirasyon si Ka Luring sa akin dahil isinabuhay niya ang pagka-PROPETA niya bilang binyagan.

 

Ang ikatlo as si Bro. Ferdi Fuentes na taga Holy Family Parish, Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig Bago siya yumao dala ng sakit na kanser noong nakaraang taon, naging huwarang lider-lingkod siya ng parokya. Malaki ang naitulong niya sa pangangasiwa ng proyekto ng bagong tayong simbahan ng Holy Family Parish. Minsan, dinalaw ko siya sa ospital at damang dama ko ang malalim niyang pananampalataya sa Diyos at patuloy na hangaring maglingkod sa kanya hanggang kaya ng kanyang katawan. Nagsilbi din siyang inspirasyon sa kanyang asawa at mga anak at pati na rin kapwa lingkod sa parokya. Pinatunayan niya sa akin ang pagsasabuhay niya ng pagka-HARING LINGKOD bilang binyagang Katoliko.

 

Hindi lamang sina Miss San Juan, Ka Luring at Bro. Ferdi Fuentes ang mga laikong naging

inspirasyon natin sa kabanalan at kabayanihan sa paglilingkod sa Diyos at sa Simbahan. Sigurado akong marami pang iba ang dapat nating alalahanin at pasasalamatan sa ating panalangin.

 

Nawa’y tandaan at isaloob ng ating laiko ang isinulat ng mga Obispo ng Pilipinas. “You, our dear lay faithful, have as your particular mission the sanctification and transformation of the world from within. In fact, many of you are called by the Lord to do service in the Church and for the Church”. (Filipino Catholic Laity: Called to Be Saints… Sent Forth as Heroes, CBCP Pastoral Exhortation for the 2014 Year of the Laity, December 1, 2013).

 

Harinawa maging mabunga ang taong ito para sa ating diyosesis sa pamamagitan ng masigasig na paglilingkod na laiko sa iba’t ibang ministro at apostolado ng mga parokya, lalung – lalo na ang mga mumunting pamayanan. Ipagdasal nating marami pang maidagdag sa laikong lingkod sa ubasan ng Panginoon dahil alam naman nating: “Sagana ang anihin ngunit kakaunti naman ang mag – aani.” (Mateo 9:37)

 

Sa pamamagitan ng ating mga Pilipinong Santo at mga banal na laikong sina San Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila at San Pedro Calungsod, at pati pa rin ang ating Patrona, ang Immaculada Concepcion , panalangin ko na dinggin ng mga laiko ng Diyosesis ng Pasig ang tawag ng Panginoon na maging tunay na banal, at tahakin ninyo ang daan na maging mga bayani ng Simbahan at lipunan sa “Makabagong Panahon ng Ebanghelisasyon.”

 

Nagmamahal,

 

+Lubhang Kagalang-galang Mylo Hubert C. Vergara, DD

Obispo ng Pasig

FOURTH WEEK OF ADVENT

A: Is 7:10–14; Rom 1:1–7; Mt 1:18–24

B: 2 Sm 7:1–5, 8b–12, 14a, 16; Rom 16:25–27; Lk 1:26–38

C: Mi 5:1–4a; Heb 10:5–10; Lk 1:39–45

Welcome to Humanity!

Advertising works by exaggeration. Jesus comes in just the opposite way: a baby too tiny to notice in an unimportant speck of the empire. We may work toward the ideal holiday—beautifully wrapped gifts and delicious meals, but there may still be awkward lapses in conversation, tired and cranky people, screaming children, and barking dogs that disrupt the caroling.

 

12/17: Gn 49:2, 8–10; Mt 1:1–17

A Mighty Growl

Lest we get too sentimental, Genesis compares Judah, Jesus’ ancestor, to a lion. It’s appropriate to roar at injustice, to work fiercely so that the Gospel permeates our world.

 

12/18: Jer 23:5–8; Mt 1:18–25

Uprooted

Matthew describes an unsettled time—no social approval or family nest welcomes Jesus. Much as we distrust such unstable times ourselves, they often give birth to the greatest growth.

 

12/19: Jgs 13:2–7, 24–25a; Lk 1:5–25

Stalled?

“You will have joy and gladness,” the angel tells Zechariah. But he becomes bogged down in the negative (“I am an old man, and my wife is advanced in years”) and he misses the great good, the undreamt possibility becoming real.

 

12/20: Is 7:10–14; Lk 1:26–38

Many Annunciations

Many people who learn they’ll be a parent or become responsible for others feel perplexed and astonished as Mary did. But for all those starting a perilous new adventure comes the same reassurance: “Nothing will be impossible for God.”

 

12/21: Sg 2:8–14 or Zep 3:14–18a; Lk 1:39–45

An Unborn Infant Leaps

What’s good news without girlfriends to share it? Not a word of complaint from Mary or Elizabeth though their pregnancies are hardly routine. What can I praise today?

 

12/22: 1 Sm 1:24–28; Lk 1:46–56

Sing Praise

Today’s calendar door opens to song. Find a musical version of “The Magnificat” (YouTube has many), listen to or sing Mary’s canticle, and reflect on it.

 

12/23: Mal 3:1–4, 23–24; Lk 1:57–66

The Importance of the Name

“Making all things new” starts with John’s name, a change from the clan’s past and its patriarchy. The name “Emmanuel” was first used during Ahaz’s corrupt rule. Ours isn’t the first era of disruptive change, war, and disaster.

 

12/24 (morning): 2 Sm 7:1–5, 8b–12, 14a, 16; Lk 1:67–79

Soon and Very Soon

“The tender mercy of our God” will blossom forth tomorrow. What glimpses of Advent grace have prepared you for this?

 

12/25: The Nativity of the Lord (Christmas)

A, B, C (Midnight): Is 9:1–6; Ti 2:11–14; Lk 2:1–14

A, B, C (Day): Is 52:7–10; Heb 1:1–6; Jn 1:1–18 or 1:1–5, 9–14

God’s Pure Gift

Some suggest that Jesus became human not to atone or rescue, but because God wanted to be better known. So God is revealed through the touch of a baby’s hand. Jesus knows how hard it is to be human, so he joins us. That is cause for rejoicing.
