“Blessed are you, deserving of all praise; from you rose the sun of justice,
Jesus Christ our God.”
“Blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear. Amen, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”
Jesus (Matthew 13:16-17)
Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 08, 2015:
When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, His disciples came to Him. He began to teach them saying:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me.
REJOICE AND BE GLAD, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
-From the Gospel of Matthew 5: 1-12
*How can we be blessed?
*Do we deserve to be among the blessed?
*Are we ready to embrace His teachings so we can rejoice and be glad?

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 01, 2015:
BLESSED THE MAN WHO FEARS THE LORD, WHO GREATLY DELIGHTS IN HIS COMMANDS. HIS POSTERITY SHALL BE MIGHTY UPON THE EARTH; THE UPRIGHT GENERATION SHALL BE BLESSED.
His generosity shall endure forever. Light shines through the darkness for the upright; he is gracious and merciful and just.
Well for the man who is gracious and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice; he shall never be moved; the just man shall be in everlasting embrace.
– From Psalms 112: 1-6
*Is fear of the Lord still in us?
*Do we still think before we talk or act?
*Do we conduct our affairs with justice?
Saint of the Day:
St. Justin, pray for us.
