Click here to listen to this homily (15 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Jesus calls each of us "the Salt of the Earth, the Light of the World." It is in little acts of kindness, going out of our way to help another, that our Christianity flavors the world. Christ's light often shines most brightly out of our faults and failures. So if you and broken then Jesus is calling you to reach out to those in need and your wounds will be healed (Isaiah 58:8).
