Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Luke 6:17,20-26

Our passage today is a series of bombshells, each one is such a challenge. Quite literally, these statements, known as beatitudes, take the accepted standards of this world and turn them upside down. We are faced all through life with a choice, the beatitudes of Christ or the attitudes of the world. What will be our choice not only for today but for the rest of our lives?
