In today’s readings (Found here:, the image of rock is used as a metaphor for the words of God. When I read them my mind went immediately to the image of a lighthouse. Strong and enduring, powerful and necessary. Jesus uses the image of the rock when He called Peter “the rock upon which I will build my church” and even used it I reference to His own body as “the cornerstone the builders rejected”.

We as His people are also charged with building and strengthening His kingdom here on earth as well and so we too become like rocks.

I see Jesus as the beacon of light in a world where darkness is all too prevalent, and his words are the rocks we must use to pave our own pathway to heaven every day, lest we not collapse as the house built on the sand but endure forever in Heaven with God.
