Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18

We are all part of something much greater than ourselves, something not confined to our own time and space. Every day, in someone you encounter, that “something” will make itself known. We need to embrace Jesus’ spirit of gratitude and humility, always aware of God’s love. We need a spirit of joy, that every prayer we offer and every good work we are able to do may be signs of God’s reign of peace and compassion in this time and place of ours.
