Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew (Mt 5, 13-16)

At that time, Jesus said to his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt becomes bland, how do you give it flavor? It is no longer worth anything: we throw it outside and it is trampled by people. You are the light of the world. A city on a mountain cannot be hidden. And you don’t light a lamp to put it under wraps; we put it on the lamppost, and it shines for everyone in the house. Likewise, let your light shine before men: then, seeing what you do well, they will give glory to your Father who is in heaven. “
