'His Many Good Deeds'
St. Barnabas (Tenth Week in Ordinary Time)
Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.
- Matthew 5:16
I had a dear friend, Bob, who was legally blind but could still read by using a large magnifying device or by enlarging the type on his computer. He was very active in charitable work. With the help of friends, he was able to get around, using his time and energy to volunteer at several local agencies that worked with the elderly who were homebound. Many of their clients had vision problems and longed to read again. Bob began to visit them, first to read to them and later to get those who still had some sight the equipment that would help them read on their own. This is how Bob spent his retirement years, tirelessly working with the elderly and the blind. He died not too long ago, having brought joy and light into the hearts of many people. His good deeds surely glorified the Lord.
