Onward, Christian Soldier

Today's gospel reading is one of my favorites, and it was the one we selected for my father's funeral nearly five years ago. The metaphors of salt and light, of a city on a hill, are earthy guideposts for the Way of life.

"You are the salt of the earth... You are the light of the world."

They are both affirmations and commands for how to evangelize, which makes it all the more fitting that today (coincidentally) Troglotyke #6 was baptized. May her light shine before all.
