5th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Posted on Updated on

Originally delivered on February 8, 1987

Readings: Isaiah 58:7-10 (73A); 1 Corinthians 2:1-5; Matthew 5:13-16

In this week’s homily, Fr. Healy reflects on his experiences as a missionary in Tanzania.  He hopes for a day when every person would feel and believe that would believe that they “are the light of the world” and “the salt of the earth.” He invites us to think about to whom Jesus spoke those words.  Just as He did then, He is indeed speaking to us, as the ordinary people.  This means that we who have heard these words are meant to be a difference to a suffering world. We are reminded of the responsibilities of being called and the examples that we’ve seen in our parish and community of taking action.
