About Today Readings

2 Corinthians 1:1-7. Taste and see the goodness of the Lord – Psalm 33(34):2-9. Matthew 5:1-12.

A world transformed

Today we reflect on the profound teaching of the Beatitudes. Jesus teaches us of a world turned upside down. A confusing promise that is contradictory to what we experience. He is teaching of a world transformed. A world where everyone freely lives as God hopes. A world where people love as he does. Alternatively, some believe this teaching to be an illustration of heaven, but I think not. Jesus is encouraging us to enter the challenge and transform the world. Looking from a higher perspective might make it easier see the world as it could be. Let us go up the mountain with him today and reflect on this vision of a world filled with love.
