06-09-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

June 9, 2014
Jesus said, “Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me.  Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.”  Mt 5:1-12

We hear about the poor in “spirit”, the meek, and the peacemakers.  Ah well, we’re all there somewhere.  We hear about the merciful, the clean of heart and the mourners and at some point in our lives we’ve all felt we were there too.  But to be persecuted for being a Catholic, for being a Christian, not as many of us, especially in the free part of the world, have had to have that experience.  Would we take a bullet to the head for standing up for our faith?  Would we wear that cross even when the world says we can’t?  Would we rejoice as Peter and John did in chains in prison for their faith?

We are blessed, just for believing!  But how much more can we be blessed for being persecuted!  God loves us even to death – and no one can take that away from us!

Be blessed, beloved!
Be bold for your faith!
