Click here to download and listen to this homily (18 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, Alaska. The Beatitudes that we hear today can be seen as a prelude to the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus, the new Mosses, lays out the Law of Love in Matthew Chapters 5-7. Our homework this week is to read those chapters and put on the mind of Christ as reveled in the beatitudes.
Readings: Zephaniah 2:3, 3:12-13; Psalm 146; 1 Corinthians 1:26-31; Matthew 5:1-12a
