REFLECTION

Repeatedly the prophets insisted that God protects the poor and despised; three times the prophet invites his hearers to seek God and take refuge in him. In the beatitudes Jesus expands on this Old Testament insight. These demanding ideals, which reserve the world’s values are addressed to all who would be his disciples. The first, about poverty of spirit, sets the tone and sums up all the rest. Those who do not rely on the world are free to entrust themselves to God. Then Jesus speaks directly to his followers preparing them for persecution—and the joy which can flow from it. For if we suffer with Christ we will share his joy! The psalm reminds us of the happiness of those poor ones who trust in God as to be filled by him. This looks like foolishness, but St. Paul insists that the gospel opposes human wisdom. We cannot be proud of our own accomplishments; our only boast is God’s grace. Living according to the beatitudes conforms us to Christ and graces us with an anticipation of eternal joy.
