"The first Beatitude: 'Blessed are the poor in spirit,' or the stripping off of this attachment and making sure that the riches that the Lord has given one are for the common good. It’s the only way. Open your hand, open your heart, open up the horizon." (Pope Francis)

Today's Reading: "Whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all." (Mark 10:43)
