January 29- Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time
“When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain,
and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.
He began to teach them, saying:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit.., Blessed are they who mourn… Blessed are the meek…
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness… Blessed are the merciful…. Blessed are the clean of heart…
Blessed are the peacemakers…Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness…
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you
and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me.
Rejoice and be glad,
for your reward will be great in heaven.”

Matthew 5:1-12

          The Gospel in your Family

          This Gospel shares the way to true happiness: The Beatitudes.

          • What does it mean to be poor in spirit? Why do you think Jesus lifts this up as a desirable trait?
          • What does it mean to be merciful? Do you think you are merciful? Explain your answer.
          • What are some ways that people today are persecuted or insulted for following Jesus? What encouragement would you give them?

          Puzzle Activity

          Gather your family today for a little brain exercise! Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw or Sudoku, puzzles engage our brains in more ways than one. Scientists have discovered that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we utilize both sides of the brain, improving memory, cognitive function, and problem-solving skills. Here are some ideas to consider:

          ·      Do a jigsaw puzzle together as a family, Print an easy crossword, word search, or sudoku puzzle for each family member and see who can finish it first. Create mixed-age teams to create an even playing field or give older children/adults more challenging puzzles. Search the Internet for create-your-own-puzzle templates. Make your own family puzzle using family photos or hand-drawn artwork.
