In the beatitudes Jesus reveals that those who are clean of heart will be able to see God. Purity is a requirement to behold God both in Heaven and on Earth. Yet what does it mean to be clean of heart?
It means to strive more and more to see others as they truly are: beloved children of God who are made in His image and likeness. It means seeking to find Jesus hidden in our neighbor. Purity and faith go hand in hand. The pure recognize Jesus hidden in humanity. The faithful recognize Jesus hidden in the Eucharist. May we be granted the grace to recognize Jesus always and in everyone.BACK TO LIST
