Heavenly Father, please forgive us for the careless words we have spoken this week. We understand that these careless words are twice sins - a sin once when we committed it and a sin a second time because we didn't see the chance to be redemptive and helpful with our talking. Open our eyes Lord so that we may see those people you have placed in our path to bless. Through the blessed name of Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 11:25-27)
The beatitudes which Jesus offers us are a symbol of contradiction to the world's understanding of gladness and joy. How can one possibly find happiness in scarcity, hunger, mourning, and harassment? Poverty of spirit finds plenty of room and joy in possessing God as the greatest wealth possible. A hunger for the spirit looks for nourishment and power in God's word and Spirit. Theresa of Avila's small prayer book enclosed a bookmark with a picture of Jesus where she wrote: "Let not anything disturb you, let not anything frighten you; all belongings pass: God never changes. Endurance achieves all it struggles for. Whoever has God lacks zero, God alone be sufficient. Is God sufficient for you? God offers us the best possible - plentiful life in Jesus Christ and assure of unending joy and contentment with God. Do we seek the highest good, the whole good, which is above all else? The meaning of Jesus' beatitudes, and why are they so fundamental to his teaching? The beatitudes react to the natural desire for pleasure that God has placed in everyone’s heart. They teach us the ultimate end to which God calls us, namely the coming of God's kingdom. Jesus' beatitudes also tackle us with decisive choices concerning the life we follow here on earth and the use we make of the goods he puts at our disposal. And God alone makes happy. Sorrow and grief over wasted life and sin leads to joyful freedom from the burden of guilt and spiritual oppression. God reveals to the humble of heart the true foundation of abundant life and happiness. Jesus promises his disciples that the joys of heaven will more than reimburse for the troubles and hardships they can expect in this world.
