Sixth Sunday of Ordinary time, The Gospel of today’s Mass plunges us into the Beatitudes. Here we discover the values Christ held up before His disciples. We need a spiritual vision & spiritual values to live by if we are to achieve the fulfilment God intends for us. What Jesus proposes is that we live by Gospel values & not by our own natural impulses. God our Father help us to see with eyes of Faith, the truly important things of life & give us the courage to livre them.
