This (All Saints) Day in Catholic Liturgy: Poor Me
Poverty of spirit means, among other things, giving up the need to have one's way, to be right, to please others or to be pleased by them. When these apparent goods are lacking in a person's life, what else is left but the Kingdom of God…and what else is necessary? Granted, until the True Value of this Kingdom is truly appreciated, the absence of those other attachments really bites.
