“If we are rich and see others in need, yet close our hearts against them, how can we claim that we love God? My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.”

1 John 3:17-18

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.
Glory to you, O Lord.

Jesus saw the crowds and went up a hill, where He sat down. His disciples gathered around Him, and He began to teach them:

“Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor;
the Kingdom of heaven belongs to them!”
“Happy are those who mourn;
God will comfort them!”

The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Could we say an extra prayer?
How could we comfort them?
What could we do to help them on the journey?

PRAYER

Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.

Think about what we could do for those who are humble, merciful and do what God asks of them. Our teachers do God’s work in so many ways. They don’t just teach us, they help, support and guide us.

How could we follow the examples of our teachers?
How many different ways do they help us?
Could we help them in any way?

Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.

Response

BEATITUDES

ACTIVITY

Think about what we could do to be more loving and more peaceful during difficult times. Our priests and Bishop Patrick do more than pray, they have to be the voice for a flock to reassure them and keep them safe.

How could we be a voice in the flock?
Do I need to be more loving?
Could I share peace to others more?

PRAYER

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
