Blessed are you who are poor, for the Kingdom of God is yours.  – Lk 6:20

Reflection.  How to live the Christian life?  That is the question.  How to live and receive love in communion with others?  How to forgive those who offend us?  How to pray to the Father with Jesus in the Holy Spirit?  How to go out to those in need, without looking for praise or thanks?  All this takes meekness and humility.

Prayer.  Father, I want to be poor in spirit so that I may live the Christian life fully.  This is the only true happiness worth pursuing.
