Saints are Like Jack/Jackie-o-Lanterns

October 31st, 2013 | Posted by Sr. Mary Valerie Schneider in Uncategorized


Light transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern. Similarly, the light of Christ transforms us ordinary people into saints.  Who, after all, are the saints?  They’re the people who let God’s light shine through in everything they do.  We are privileged to carry the light of Christ within us. Do we let it shine?

Today be a jack-o-lantern. Let your light shine. Compliment the cashier or waitress. Pay it forward. Tell family members and friends how much you appreciate them. Be grateful for even the tiny things. Surprise someone with an act of kindness. It takes just a few minutes to transform a dismal autumn day into an experience of God’s goodness.
