Weekly Reflection

You Are the Light of the World

02-05-2023We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 48, No. 1

Are you a practicing Catholic? It seems silly to ask that question here, for you are practicing your faith at this very moment. “Attends Mass on Sundays” is often shorthand for “practicing Catholic”. But the word of God that we hear today offers a different perspective. In this passage from Isaiah, the Lord commands us to feed the hungry, to set the oppressed free, to shelter the homeless, to clothe the naked. This is what heals and vindicates us. This is what brings light to the gloom. We know from the feeling we get when we do something good for someone else that this is how to practice our faith. Saint Paul was the first to admit that he brought faith to others not through his words or his wisdom, but through a demonstration of the Holy Spirit working through him. Jesus calls his disciples the light of the world. Their light needs to shine for all, so “that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father” (Matthew 5:16). This then is a necessary part of being a practicing Catholic: doing good for those in need. In doing so we practice our faith, we become vindicated in God’s eyes, and we live as God wills for us.

What will you do this week to shine as Christ for others, to practice your Catholic faith?

Ustedes Son La Luz Del Mundo

¿Eres un católico practicante? Parece tonto hacer esa pregunta aquí, porque estás practicando tu fe en este mismo momento. “Asistes a la Misa los domingos” a menudo es sinónimo a “católico practicante”. Pero la Palabra de Dios que escuchamos hoy ofrece una perspectiva diferente. En este pasaje de Isaías, el Señor nos ordena alimentar a los hambrientos, liberar a los oprimidos, para proteger a las personas sin hogar, para vestir a los desnudos. Esto es lo que nos cura y nos reivindica. Esto es lo que trae luz a la penumbra. Sabemos por el sentimiento que tenemos cuando hacemos algo bueno por otra persona que así es como practicar nuestra fe. San Pablo fue el primero en admitir que trajo fe a los demás, no a través de sus palabras o su sabiduría, sino a través de una demostración del Espíritu Santo que trabajaba a través de él. Jesús llama a sus discípulos la luz del mundo. Su luz debe brillar para todos, así que "pueden ver sus buenas acciones y glorificar a su Padre Celestial" (Mateo 5:16). Esta es una parte necesaria de ser un católico practicante: hacer el bien para los necesitados. Al hacerlo, practicamos nuestra fe, nos revendamos a los ojos de Dios, y vivimos como Dios desea para nosotros.

¿Qué harás esta semana para brillar como Cristo para los demás, para practicar tu fe católica?
