“He began to teach them, saying: ‘Blessed are…’” (Mt 5:2-3)
Eight simple blessings which cover all kinds of life situations: from lack of food to persecution, from mourning to thirst for justice. Each of this situations is covered with God’s blessing. Our Lord gives us a different perspective. The blessing is not in prosperity, in goods or in success; the blessing rests in relation with Him. When we imitate His life, when we follow His ways, when we perform His will, we are blessed.
“The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; my God is my saving strength” (Communion Antiphon)
