Welcome to St. Anne’s Parish!

You are the Salt and Light!
Jesus says we are the salt of the earth.

Have you ever tasted food that wasn’t salty enough? It can
taste pretty bland. But do you notice when food has the right amount of salt? Usually we don’t think about it. It’s kind of hiding in the food and making it taste good. Jesus wants us to be like the “salt” in the world, with the goodness and truth that He gives us.  Jesus also says that we are the light of the world.

  Can you imagine a completely dark world; no sun or
lights or anything? It would be pretty scary. You’d never know what was happening or where you were going. That’s what the world can be like for people who don’t have the light of God’s truth. It’s our job to bring the truth to the world so that everyone can see that God loves them.  We have to bring God’s light everywhere we go. But we must gentle with people who don’t understand the truth. Otherwise it would be like shining a light in someone’s eyes, and they wouldn’t be able to see anything. We need to start out like little candles, lighting the way so that people can follow us toward God.
“You are the light of the world.”
