Luke 6, 20-26:
“Blessed are the poor… Blessed are you who are hungry now… Blessed are you who weep now… Blessed are you when people hate you, drive you out, abuse you, and denounce you … Rejoice and dance for joy, because your reward will be great in heaven.”
We just have to get in touch with social networks and the media to receive endless offers of all kinds and shades.
And behind all of them is an offer of joy and happiness.
The Beatitudes are also an offer of happiness.
Getting in touch with the Gospel and reading the chapters in which Jesus proclaims the beatitudes we receive another kind of offer to achieve happiness.
Many others promise us always the achievement of that happiness to which we all aspire.
Choose what Jesus has to offer. In reality, it is the offer that really is going to make you happy.
In your time of prayer today listen again to the path of happiness that Jesus offers you and ask him for the strength to opt for its programme of happiness and know how to live it.
