WHOSE BLESSINGS?

This homily, based on Mark 4:35-41, was delivered at the St. John Catholic School, Siem Reap, Cambodia.

For me, it’s not easy to read the Beatitudes–not to mention to preach about it. Maybe it’s because in the Beatitudes, our┬áLord Jesus blesses the very people the world considers cursed. ┬áConsider his list:

  1. the poor in spirit
  2. the mourners
  3. the meek
  4. those who seek justice
  5. the merciful
  6. the pure of heart
  7. the peacemakers, and
  8. the persecuted.
