Salt, light, and leaven are metaphors for discipleship. These powerful symbols teach us that every disciple is called to be present to the day and time in which one finds oneself.

Are disciples ready to be present everywhere? Are we ready to see ourselves as necessary collaborators in the work of God? What happens if I don’t do my part today?

Gracious God, empower me to celebrate the gift of my vocation. As a disciple, I am called to be salt, light and leaven in today’s world. May my presence and action make a difference.
