Father Csaba’s reflections on the Gospel.
Our Lord Jesus Christ in today’s gospel is showing His disciples many ways leading to a blessed life. In the year of mercy let us choose the seventh of the beatitudes and today on All Saint’s Day on our way to the cemetery let us reflect on this :"
7"Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy."
It is so good to know that mercy will open for us the way into the kingdom of heaven, for eternal joy! We are all aware of our faults, sins afflicting ,crippling us the one way by which we can be freed from this according to our Lord Jesus Christ :”Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us …..”
I encourage you lovingly generously embark on the road of mercy,

1 Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down his disciples came to him.
2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:
3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
5 "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
7 "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
9 "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
10 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 "Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you.
