Proclamation of the Kingdom

The third luminous mystery is a bit harder to exactly pin point in the Bible since it is in all the Gospels several time, “Repent for the Kingdom is at hand” is the general message from Jesus about the Kingdom. The fruit of this mystery is Trust in God. The beatitudes give us a nice set of guidelines blessed are the poor in spirit or the poor for their is the kingdom of God. This is a radical thing to think of being “poor” when everyone else in society only wants to get rich.  However I find that you learn more from things that cost you less and you get more from these experiences that earn you little. Let us all try to trust more in God this upcoming week and try to bring about the Kingdom here on earth.
