Dear Friend in the Lord,

Beatitudes” – Faith: In today’s celebration of “All Saints Day”, let us pray for the grace of a greater openness to the “Truth” of the “Beatitudes” of Jesus, and beg God for the graces to live our faith in the “wisdom” of the saints.  The saints were sinners like us, but they became very close to God through their deep commitment to become more like Jesus.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 5:2b-12a

This is what Jesus taught his disciples:

‘How happy are the poor in spirit: theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Happy the gentle: they shall have the earth for their heritage.

Happy those who mourn: they shall be comforted.

Happy those who hunger and thirst for what is right: they shall be satisfied.

Happy the merciful: they shall have mercy shown them.

Happy the pure in heart: they shall see God.

Happy the peacemakers: they shall be sons of of God.

Happy those who are persecuted in the cause of right: theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.

‘Happy are you when people abuse you and persecute you and speak all kinds of calumny against you on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.’
