I guess it is appropriate to read this as the flu runs rampant. Blessed are the poor: poor in spirit, poor in connection, poor in relationship. How frustrating is it when someone we care about is feeling poorly and we can not affect a healing. We feel helpless and hopeless. When we help the poor we are serving God and the poor person is providing the opportunity for that service. We will never be done serving God and God's people yet we get frustrated when our service does not give us the results we want in the short term.
