Feast of Saints Timothy and Titus

Good morning. “If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn't matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years - we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.” These words by meditation instructor and writer Sharon Salzberg help to summarize the significance of today’s Gospel message. Once the light has been turned on it is on. However, we must continue to attend to that light to keep it shining brightly. In marriage we are called to help illuminate each other, to help reveal the goodness and joy which exists in each other. Saints Timothy and Titus whose lives we commemorate today lit the path for many followers of Christ who came after them. In marriage we help light the path to joy and happiness for each other, helping one another stay on the path which leads to Christ. As married couples we need to awaken each day and remind ourselves to keep the home lights burning. What can we do to keep each other’s light shining brightly today? Make a great day!

Today we recall the good lives, gifts, and works of Saints Timothy and Titus.
