From the Mount of the Beatitudes, we soak in the good news that Jesus brought to the poor in spirit, those who were in the midst of hard realities, desperate for acceptance. The message for us is clear: Don't keep being enslaved to runaway emotions and assumptions. Go on a "live loved" quest. Get to a place where your immediate reaction to off-kilter interactions with others isn't a downward spiral of wonky feelings, but stable love instead.
