Topic of the Week   (Mesra 16-22)
Blessed are the Pure in Heart

Verse of the Week
"Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God."

- Matthew 5:8

Meaning: To be pure is to be unmixed with anything else. The pure in heart are devoted to the worhsip and service of God. With the aid of the Holy Spirit, they (1) practice all virtue, (2) are not conscious of any evil in themselves, and (3) live in temperance- a stage of spirituality attained by few in this life. When the soul is not dominated by sinful passions nor its energy dissipated by the things of this world, its only desire is God. Then the heart- holding fast to the new life in Christ and contemplating the glory of God - shall see God through communion with His Son.

Proverb of the Week
"Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised."

- Proverbs 31:30
