FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME FEBRUARY 6, 2011 Since the beginning of the year I have made comments about the length of daylight and how we should be optimistic because of its increase. For some people the shortness in daylight has very serious and sometimes almost debilitating effects. As daylight length increases during this time of year there is relief for those so affected. When applied to living our faith this phenomenon can help us understand the positive effect we can have on others all the time. Jesus says to his disciples: “You are the light of the world.” The danger we have concerning faith is that when we do not practice it well, when we do not let our “light” shine, the effect can be similar on people as is the lack of daylight. The Beatitudes we heard about last week can be of help as a starting point. Those who let the “light” shine by living the Beatitudes “in spirit” can have a big impact. The daylight length only needs to increase in small increments at first to give benefits. Our faith can have the same impact of encouragement if we live it with the right attitude, even if we practice it in small ways.
