Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
All Commentaries on Matthew 5:6 Go To Matthew 5
Chromatius of Aquileia
He taught that we must seek after righteousness with earnest desire, not with fainthearted energy. Indeed, he calls those persons blessed who in their search for righteousness virtually burn with passionate longing in their hunger and thirst. For if each one of us really hungers and thirsts for righteousness with eager desire, we can do nothing else but think and seek after righteousness. It is necessary that we eagerly desire that for which we hunger and thirst. .
