LISTEN: Reflection for the 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time — Year A

In today’s gospel acclamation we hear Jesus say: “I am the light of the world.” And then amazingly in the gospel, we then hear the powerful words spoken to each of us: “You are the light of the world.” In seeking to follow Jesus we are called to be like him – to be light. It is perhaps easy for us to think of Jesus as the light of the world. Not quite so easy, perhaps, to recognise our own vocation to be the light of the world.
