Monday of the Twenty-fifth week in Ordinary Time
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 8:16-18.
Jesus said to the crowd : "No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed ; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light.
For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.
Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away."
The Gospel is very clear that whatever secret do you have will come out. So, do good always because people will rejoice to those who are good but the evil one will be cursed. Whatever goodness you do will make you proud but the evil thing you have done will put you in shame.
