Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Today we are confronted with the reality that we, too, are Salt and Light.  Yes, each one
of  us  is  salt  and  light  because Christ tells us so. What does this mean when we are
called salt and light?

If we are a person who just goes through the motions in faith and belief our convictions
are minimal at best and often it is that type of person who will be like the salt that loses
its  flavor  and  does  not  continue  to  let  Christ  be  known  in  and  through their own life
activities.
