Let it Shine!

Good words for right now. (It's pouring outside.)
Again the first reading and the Gospel are a great match! The book of proverbs tells us to do the good that's in reach, and not put it off, whether out of arbitrary whim (which is what the reading seems to hint at) or just procrastination. And Jesus tells us that the light we have been given is not meant to be hidden away or kept for ourselves: it has work to do!
I found myself thinking of the words our Founder's spiritual director wrote in his own journal: "You will conquer the world with something the world does not have." That's the light that must not be hidden!  And that's the work that must not be delayed.
