"You are the salt of the earth…" (Matthew 5:13a)
"It is the nature of
the divine savour [salt] which is in you, to spread to whatsoever you touch; to
diffuse itself, on every side, to all those among whom you are. This is the great reason why the providence
of God has so mingled you together with [others], that whatever grace you have
received of God may through you be communicated to others…"
