Road maps are very much a thing of the past in 2020. You google where you want to go and your phone or computer tells you every step to take to get from ‘A’ to ‘B’. I always think of the Beatitudes, in today’s gospel, as a road map to the kingdom of God. When we follow these virtues/activities/values we are ‘on our way’ to the kingdom of God. Our human condition, our sinfulness, may make us detour or make the wrong turn, but the grace of God is more abundant and calls us back to the way of Jesus, the Lord. He IS the Way! Then we are preparing ourselves to be among the saints of God, so that this Feast will become our Feast, in the future, as we share in the glory of the kingdom of God for having faithfully followed the Lord Jesus here and now.
