Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
November 1, 2020 – Sunday
Gospel: Matthew 5:1-12a
“Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.”
We are familiar with the Sermon on the Mount or the Beatitudes, wherein Jesus speaks on how we can lead holy lives in our journey to heaven. He speaks of humility, mourning our sins so we can renew our lives, to be meek and faithful to God’s will, hunger for righteousness, be merciful to those who suffer, be pure in heart and purpose, be a peacemaker, and don’t be afraid to be persecuted.
We only have to seek God, ask for guidance, seek His will and plan, bring others to Him,and we are assured of heaven as our final destination.
Thank you, Jesus for teaching us the Way. Showing us The Truth and being the Life for us. Amen.
