Gospel: Luke 6:17, 20-26
"Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven." (cf. Lk 6:23)
We always hear Jesus praising and blessing the least of all the people. And it is with their rich faith and righteous lives that He is touched the most. A person's life is being tested through tough and down times. It is also through these times that his faith is being enriched by choosing to take the righteous way. Jesus, in today's Gospel, assured those who live faithfully and righteously with heavenly reward. May we live our lives rich in faith and righteous in our ways because of love for God and eventually enjoy God's great rewards in heaven.
