Daily Thought For January 12, 2015

Blessed Are The Socially Poor

Blessed also are the poor in spirit socially. Blessed are they who know of only one aristocracy—the blue bloods born at the baptismal font and the royalty of the King of Kings. 


There is going to be a tremendous transformation of social position at the last day, for God is no respecter of persons. Our social position in the Kingdom of God will depend not upon our human popularity or the popularity of propagandists, but only upon those things we carry with us in the shipwreck of the world—a clear conscience and the love of God. 

from The Cross & The Beatitudes —Lessons on Love and Forgiveness by Fulton J. Sheen pp.54-55
