Heavenly Father, increase our hunger for you and show us the way that leads to everlasting happiness and peace. May our desire you above all else and find perfect joy in doing your will.

Give us eyes to see this need more clearly and a heart to react more certainly so that your love may be demonstrated through us. In the precious name of Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 6:20-26)
Jesus began his talk on the mount by addressing the issues of where true happiness can be establish. The word beatitude factually means happiness or holiness. How can one possibly find contentment in poverty, hunger, mourning, and harassment? If we want to be filled by the joy and happiness of heaven, then we must unfill ourselves of all that would close God out of our hearts. Poverty of spirit finds plenty room and joy in possessing God unaccompanied as the greatest wealth possible. Hunger of the spirit seeks sustenance and strength in God's word and Spirit. Grief and mourning over wasted existence and sin leads to joyful liberty from the burden of guilt and domination. God reveals to the modest of heart the true cause of abundant life and contentment. Jesus promises his disciples that the joys of heaven will more than reimburse for the troubles and hardships they can wait for in this world. Thomas Aquinas said: "No person can live with no joy. That is why somebody deprived of spiritual joy goes following carnal pleasures." Do you identify the joy and pleasure of hungering and thirsting for God only?
