Daily Bible Reflections - June 11, 2012

Memorial of St. Barnabas, Apostle
“Blessed are the clean of heart for they will see God.” – Matthew 5:8
There was a vain Emperor who busied himself with acquiring new clothes and flaunting them to his subjects. Two conmen who presented themselves as weavers promised to make him the finest clothes made from a magical fabric, visible only to those who are worthy and wise. When the new wardrobe was finished, the Emperor pretended he could see it. He had a parade to show off his new outfit. The crowd also pretended to see the magical suit. Suddenly, a little child, in all his innocence, shouted, “The Emperor is wearing nothing.” The Emperor failed to recognize that he had been tricked.
In the same way, if we constantly sin in mind and heart, and preoccupy ourselves with the things of this world, it would be hard for us to see God and recognize His presence with our spiritual eyes.
A priest said, “People with pure hearts unceasingly think about God. They are free from passions caused by self-centeredness, egotism and pride.”
Want to have a pure heart? Remove all rubbish and garbage that pollute your soul… and then you will see Him. Judith Concepcion (svp_jmc@yahoo.com)
Have you done some “house” cleaning lately?
“A clean heart create for me, O God; renew in me a steadfast spirit.” (Psalm 51:12)
St. Barnabas, Apostle, pray for us.
