Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted’

The Second Beatitude: Blessed are those who mourn

Who are those who mourn? Why will they be comforted?

Those who mourn’ refers to those people who are spiritually sorrowful. These are the people who grieve over their own sins, who grieve over the sins of others. These people have realised their sin, have understood their mistakes, have asked for forgiveness. These people might be still bearing the consequence of sin, maybe because they are in prison, or separated from their families, or without a job; but despite this situation, they yearn for the joys and peace of heaven.

‘What makes us fulfilled?’

Short reflection by George Calleja

In the past months, many friends of mine have faced difficult times in their lives. Some had a relative who passed away, others experienced problems in their marriage, some faced health difficulties, such as undergoing a major operation. These situations made me wonder about life.

A Prayer… for those who are walking away from Jesus

Prayer by George Calleja

Lord Jesus… I believe in your Salvation

You died on the cross to bring Salvation to all nations

You died for all mankind… no matter if they believe in you or not

Jesus, you love each and every person on earth

But even though you died for us

There are people who are walking away from you

Jesus, I pray for these people

That in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

They may return back to you

Jesus, open their eyes, so that they may see ‘The Light’

Help them to listen to your Word

And to nourish it in their hearts

Jesus, I thank you

For your love will surely reach out to these people

And may they be Blessed upon returning back to you.
