Jesus uses the image of salt as something that makes food tasty. Without it food can be tasteless. Who are the people who give zest to your life and make it enjoyable?
The second image is that of light. Who have been the people who have been a light for you, particularly in moments of darkness? For whom have you been a light
The images of salt and light can also be applied to communities to which we belong, a family, a parish or other group. Thinking of the groups of which you are a member, how can the potential of them be enhanced to enrich the lives of members and offer them a guiding light?
