Beatitudes of Life
Blessed are the faithful:
They are like safe anchors in a world of broken moorings.
Blessed are the just:
They are to society what leaven is to bread.
Blessed are the generous:
They keep alive our faith in the essential goodness of people.
Blessed are the caring:
They shine like beacons in a world darkened by indifference.
Blessed are the genuine:
They glow like gems in a world of falseness.
Blessed are those who are not afraid of sacrifice:
On the day of the harvest they will sing for joy.
And blessed are those who refuse to look back:
They will be found worthy of the Kingdom of Heaven.

The highest state we can attain is when goodness becomes an easy flow of grace, uncalculating and natural. When it falls from us without our notice, as a leaf from a tree. We are dealing with an act of spontaneous goodness. So too in the case of the Samaritan. It’s obvious that for the Samaritan goodness had become habitual, spontaneous, second nature. The nice thing about people like that is that they don’t think they have done anything special. For some, generosity consists in a few sporadic acts; for others, it is a way of life.
