How happy are the poor in spirit; theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
(Psalm 145:6-7.8-9.9-10, 29th January 2017)
Sunday Gospel Reflection: St Matthew's Gospel presents eight beatitudes. The beatitudes are the badges of a true disciple of Christ. The things they stand for are very beautiful: things such as peace, goodness, joy, love, gentleness, compassion, mercy and integrity. A person who lives according to the beatitudes is already living in the kingdom of heaven. Eternal life will merely be the full blossoming of a plant that is green with life.
