The Parable of the Lamp

“The Parable of the Lamp”
A reflection on Luke 8:16-18
Monday of the Twenty-Fifth Week in Ordinary Time
©️2021 by Gloria M. Chang

“No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”

Luke 8:16-18

    Dear GMC, Thank you for your reflection. It helps us leave indifference behind and gives us the courage to have our light shine to all we meet in the world. It helps us hear and listen and speak with joy. It helps us answer WWJD for ourselves and others in creative and thought-provoking ways. Appealing especially to the younger generations. Thank you, GMC!

    I may often bushel my light,
    By covering myself with ego.
    In others’ shadows I walk,
    Blind as a bat hiding low.
    Lord, open my eyes,
    Fill me with your holy grace.
    Make me shine brightly
    Here, there and in every place.
