Serving the Word: 12th June

MONDAY 12th JUNE 2023

Matthew 5, 1-12:

“Blessed are the poor, the mourners, the suffering, the merciful, the pure in heart, the persecuted”.


One of the great aspirations of human beings is to be happy.

And everyone bases their happiness on something or someone.

Jesus, as a new Moses who gives a new law, shows us today the way to happiness and tells us that true happiness and true joy are not based on having but on being.

Happiness and joy do not lie in having money, fame, triumphs, power…

The programme that Jesus proposes to us is quite the opposite. It is based on poverty, on sharing, on humility and simplicity of heart, on not seeking one’s own interests, but the interests of others.

In short, it is the same programme on which he used for himself.

As we have already said, Jesus’ programme is to “wrap your towel” tightly around your waist and “get your hands and apron dirty”.

This shows that you are working and serving others.

Good day to you.
