How much do we throw ourselves into our lives in this world?  How much do we value our careers, possessions, homes, entertainments and even our families?  How sad would we be to give it all up and move to an existence somewhere completely different?  Although we are all called to be ‘salt and light’ in our communities, the Gospel passage assigned to this week reminds us that our home is elsewhere.  When Jesus prays for his disciples, he notes that, they are not ‘of this world’ any more than He is of this world.  The question returns.  Are we too much in love with this world?  It is a lingering question, which should make us continually reflect.
