4th Sunday in Ordinary Time
In the Old Testament God promised to Abraham a kingdom and a people. Last week Jesus began to fulfill that promise of a kingdom by beginning the calling of his 12 Apostles. These 12 would eventually form the Church – the new kingdom of God that will last into eternity. This week, Jesus describes the attributes of those who belong to this kingdom, what kingdom citizens look like: they look like the 8 beatitudes. How can I become more a kingdom citizen this week? And how can I help others to become more of a kingdom citizen this week?
