Jesus gives a window into our future in today’s gospel: Those who mourn will be comforted; those who hunger for righteousness will be satisfied. Fr Greg urges us to let God be our future. No matter how difficult things are for us today, God offers us an incomparably better tomorrow in his kingdom.
When [Barnabas] arrived [in Antioch] … he rejoiced and encouraged them all… And a large number of people was added to the Lord.
ACTS 11:21B-26; 12:1-3
“Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
