  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 6:20-26)
When Jesus start to teach his disciples he gave them a "way of happiness" that go beyond every difficulty and trouble that can consider us down with grief and despair. How can one perhaps find happiness in deficiency, hunger, mourning, and persecution? If we want to be filled with the joy and pleasure of heaven, then we must empty ourselves of all that would shut God out of our hearts. Poverty of spirit finds plenty room and joy in possessing God alone as the most treasure possible. Hunger of the spirit seeks sustenance and strength in God's word and Spirit. Sorrow and mourning over exhausted life and sin leads to joyful freedom from the burden of guilt and domination. God reveals to the humble of heart the true source of abundant life and happiness. Jesus assures his disciples that the joys of heaven will more than recompense for the troubles and hardships they can expect in this world. Aquinas said: "No person can live without joy. That is why a celebrity deprived of pious joy goes following carnal pleasures." Do we know the joy and happiness of hunger and thirsting for God alone?
