Blessed are those who know their need of God

God Experienced through the Trinity

In the New English Translation of the Bible, the first Beatitude is translated not: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” but “How blest are those who know their need of God, the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.”. When people get to the point of knowing their need of God, they give up trying to rationalise our Trinitarian God through illustrations and metaphors, and just accept God as somewhere in the Grace, Love and Fellowship that happens in the ordinary, frustrating and everyday events of their lives. As Richard Rohr puts it: “Trinity leads you into the world of mystery and humility where you can’t understand, you can only experience.”.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Love of God and the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit

be with us all now and forever.  Amen.
