Not of This World and Making a Difference by Robert Ricciardelli
The Beatitudes offer a life that seems other worldly. Who can be truly gentle, merciful, pure in heart, and always concerned about justice? Loving our enemies, persecuted, what kind of life is that? We are in the world but we are of the Kingdom and of God's presence. We will be comforted and will be filled, while mercy overflows. We will be known as God's children and truly see God presently and in the life to come.
