to believe that the Holy Spirit is still at work--
that He has not abandoned us.
Pope Francis recently added a few
updates to the Beatitudes which should
give us pause and confirm that indeed
the Spirit of God is guiding the world.
We only need to listen. . .
"Blessed are those who remain faithful while enduring evils
inflicted on them by others and forgive them from their heart.”
"Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned
and marginalized and show them their closeness.”
"Blessed are those who see God in every person
and strive to make others also discover him.”
"Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home.”
“Blessed are those who renounce their own comfort in order to help others.”
"Blessed are those who pray and work for full communion between Christians."
