Your reward will be great in heaven

“Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.” (MT 5: 11-12)

All blessings change our perspective: from thinking about prosperity on Earth to looking for eternal friendship with God. The more we are like Our Lord, and the more we imitate His life, the more we “will be great in heaven.” And the true reward, the real reason to “rejoice and be glad,” is to be in Heaven with Him.

“Rejoice and be glad; for your reward will be great in heaven. (Gospel Acclamation)
