Gospel text (Lk 6:20-26): Raising his eyes toward his disciples Jesus said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for the Kingdom of God is yours." Raising his eyes toward his disciples Jesus said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for the Kingdom of God is yours. Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way.

But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. But woe to you who are filled now, for you will be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will grieve and weep. Woe to you when all speak well of you, for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.”

Today we attend the "Sermon on the Mount." Jesus gives us courage: He always remains on our side, especially in difficulties (poverty, sadness, incomprehension ...). In fact, it is a danger to have airs and graces in life: sated, laughing, praised by others ...

-Jesus is realistic (there are difficulties!) And, at the same time, optimistic (He accompanies me). Walking with God, our walk is joyful, even if we find pain as a traveling companion.
