How did this relate to the day’s Gospel?
It was a rather simple conclusion really and – while I can certainly identify plenty of food that doesn’t require salt for flavour – the point resonated with me. Now that I am with child it gets pretty difficult to go to Mass and be able to pay full attention to the homily. Yesterday was particularly difficult because Joshua decided to babble through the entire thing and spent most of his time cruising up and down the pew, distracting surrounding families. That, and the priest had a really thick accent, so not only was I already distracted, my brain had to work double-time in translating. But I heard this bit, and this bit clicked.
