Some people say that Jesus is the light of the world.
Litany

Some people say that Jesus is the light of the world. We all can be the light of the world if we seek to act in ways that enlarge the realms of love and justice.

When we share another's pain or offer a comforting ear to a friend in need,

  • We are the light of the world.

When we give bread to the hungry or support ways to house the homeless,

  • We are the light of the world.

When we fight temptations to wrongdoing within ourselves and treat our neighbors with respect,

  • We are the light of the world.

When we try to overcome differences with understanding and solve conflict with peaceful means,

  • We are the light of the world.

When we look for the good in other people and in ourselves,

  • We are the light of the world.

When we do not stay quiet in the face of prejudice, but speak our minds firmly and gently,

  • We are the light of the world.

When we fight despair within ourselves and side with hope,

  • We are the light of the world.

When we use our powers justly and in the service of love for humanity,

  • We are the light of the world.

We are the light of the world! Amen and amen.
