Commentary on the Gospel of
What makes the poor blessed? Is it poverty? What makes those mourning blessed? Is it the experience of losing someone? What makes the persecuted blessed? Is it because of suffering? Ask not what makes us blessed but who makes us blessed? And this will lead us to Jesus. It is easy to find Jesus in our comfort, in our riches, in the loving relationship of the family and friends, in serenity and peace. But will it be possible for us to still feel the presence of Jesus, and therefore the blessedness of us all, in the midst of poverty, problems, sufferings and calumnies.
