The Smaller Beatitudes
Blessed are those who are sane enough not to take themselves too seriously: they will be valued by those about them.
Happy are you if you can take small things seriously and face serious things calmly.
Happy are you if you can be kind in understanding the attitudes of others.
Blessed are they who think before acting and pray before thinking: they will avoid many blunders.
Blessed are those who recognise the Lord in all whom they meet: the light of truth shines in their lives.
They have found true wisdom.

Some people are threatened by the gifts or achievements of others. If only they had a more open attitude they would find themselves enriched rather than diminished by those gifts. The person who is different from me does not diminish me but enriches me. God bestows his gifts freely. Our responsibility is to welcome those gifts wherever they appear.
Jesus said that anyone who gave the little ones even a cup of cold water would be rewarded. The ‘cup of cold water’ is a symbol of the small kind deed.
Pray for Seán O’Shea, Carlow and late of Baile Móir.
