Abandonment and Joy

“The Beatitudes express the meaning of discipleship…
What the Beatitudes mean cannot be expressed in purely theoretical terms;
It is proclaimed in the life and suffering, and in the mysterious joy, of the disciple who gives himself over completely to following the Lord.” Pope Benedict XVI
Our dear Papa Ben is a brilliant man who is able to cut through the rhetoric and reach the heart of the matter. In reading his writings, one can see how immersed he is in Scriptures. Let us give ourselves over to completely follow Jesus as he has, serving the world in humble attitude and gratitude.

Matthew 5:16 So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
