Third Sunday after Epiphany

Gospel: Matthew 5:1-12

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Almighty and ever-loving Father,

The rancor within humanity has yet to abate, leaving nations and communities ever more fragmented by its iniquities; obscuring the light of kindred spirit. 

Father, hear our pleas for this world to be a better place, where falsehoods cannot be spun into truths, where common decency for all is not the exception but the rule, and where pride, conceit, and envy have no deserved place in the heart, and where the love of mindfulness is fulfilled in everyday life.

Lord, maker of all things heaven and earth, bring us peace. Bestow upon us Thy unfailing love that heals the heart and nourishes one’s soul, restoring the virtues and benevolence this world can offer. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
