Epiphany 4 – In the Beatitudes we see that, in contrast to the teachings of so-called "prosperity theology", God's favour rests in places of greatest need, among the poorest and the most vulnerable. We are called to help those who need help; and to see them not as nuisances, but as persons with marks of blessedness. At a national level we can see how little regard there is for these teachings of Jesus, when we encounter policies and attitudes that reject refugees, promote xenophobia, and reduce support for the needy.
?Matthew 5: 1-12
