Daily Gospel Reflection – Monday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time

Monday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time 

Gospel: Mt 5:1-12

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. He began to teach them, saying: 

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven. 
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. 
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land. 
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. 
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. 
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. 
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven. 
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. 
Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you." 
*United States Conference of Catholic 

Bishop Robert Barron

Friends, in today’s Gospel, Jesus goes up a mountain and sits down to teach. In the Old Testament, we find Moses, the great teacher, also going up a mountain to receive the Law and then sitting down to teach it. However, Jesus is not receiving a law; he is giving one. 

Theologian N.T. Wright has pointed out that the Old Testament is essentially an unfinished symphony. It is the articulation of a hope but without a realization of that hope. Thus, as the fulfillment of Israel’s entire story, Jesus begins his primary teaching with the Beatitudes, a title that stems from the Latin noun beātitūdō, meaning “happy” or “blessed.” 

Through this series of paradoxes, surprises, and reversals, Jesus begins setting a topsy-turvy universe aright. How should we understand them? A key is the Greek word makarios, rendered “blessed” or “happy” or perhaps even “lucky,” which is used to start each of the Beatitudes.
