Nobody lights a lamp and covers it with a basin. No, a man puts his lamp on a lamp-stand.
Who is Jesus talking about? Clearly, not about us. Because we don’t place a lamp on a lamp stand, but we do cover it with a basin. As tightly as possible. To cover, to crush, to put out. Don’t let it shine, don’t let it burn, don’t let it light up the darkness.
We, the jealous ones; because we do not glow, because the darkness persists within us.
Fr. M. M.
