Blessed are those who mourn

Jesus praises the weeping class, those who can enter into solidarity with the pain of the world and not try to extract themselves from it.
That is why Jesus says the rich man can’t see the kingdom. The rich one spends life trying to make tears unnecessary and, ultimately, impossible …
The weeping mode allows one to carry the dark side, to bear the pain of the world without looking for perpetrators or victims,
but instead recognising the tragic reality that both sides are caught up in. Tears from God are always for everybody.
Richard Rohr
