|“Everyone will be salted with fire.” —Mark 9:49|
Jesus says that you and I “will be salted with fire” (Mk 9:49). The scriptural uses for salt reveal several possible meanings:
“You are the salt of the earth” (Mt 5:13). Get fired up!
|Prayer: Father, don’t just sprinkle me with fire; set me aflame with Your love.|
|Promise: “Keep salt in your hearts and you will be at peace with one another.” —Mk 9:50|
|Praise: St. Polycarp, a disciple of the original apostles, was burned at the stake for his faith in Jesus.|
