My friend Karen Ford offers a great take on Paying it Forward in this article on being salt and light to the world: Salt and Light
She writes: How can we be light? Simple kindness and charity (true love) are the
best place to begin. Likewise, reflect Christ's light when others don't
see it in themselves. In our world of instant information, we risk
losing the ability to look into another's eyes and recognize Christ in
our brothers and sisters. Make eye contact with those around you.
Listen to their voices. Notice their pain, their joy, their needs.
In 2013, will you join me to be "Salt and Light," to pay forward the graces and gifts our Lord has granted us three-fold each day, in honor of the Most Holy Trinity?
