“The nation... doesn’t simply need what we have. It needs what we are.” (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross) How true this is today more so than previous times! We are to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We are called to be the presence of true love in a world which is broken and feel adrift in the light of darkness. We are called to be the holiness of God in a world adrift in a sea of sin and evil. We are called to be the disciples of Jesus Christ in the world arena of hate, anger and self-destruction. We are called to be bearers of the Truth, the Way and the Life, which is Jesus Christ, whether the world around us wants Him or not. The first century Christians found themselves in a similar position as we are in today. Who they were led people to what they had. They were in love with God more than they were with life itself. That love was obvious and overpowering in time.
