Blessed!

Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

During his recent apostolic visit to the UAE, the Holy Father celebrated Mass for Peace and Justice. The Gospel reading was taken from beginning of the Sermon of the Mount, the Beatitudes according to St. Matthew. The homily delivered by Pope Francis was so moving that two prominent Emirati newspapers, The National and the Khaleej Times, led their editions with headlines “Blessed” and “We are blessed”. Since this Sunday, we hear St. Luke’s version of the Beatitudes. I thought it would be appropriate to share with you a fragment of the Pope’s homily.

“Blessed: this is the word with which Jesus begins his preaching… And it is the refrain he repeats today, as if to fix in our hearts, more than anything, an essential message: if you are with Jesus, if you love to listen to his word as the disciples of that time did, if you try to live out this word every day, then you are blessed. Not you will be blessed, but you are blessed; this is the first truth we know about the Christian life. It is not simply a list of external prescriptions to fulfil or a set of teachings to know. The Christian life, first and foremost, is not this; rather, it is the knowledge that, in Jesus, we are the Father’s beloved children. The Christian life means living out the joy of this blessedness, wanting to live life as a love story, the story of God’s faithful love, he who never abandons us and wishes to be in communion with us always. This is the reason for our joy, a joy that no one in the world and no circumstance in our lives can take from us. It is a joy that gives peace also in the midst of pain, a joy that already makes us participate in that eternal happiness which awaits us…
