The Gospel of St. Matthew Shares with us astonishing words of Jesus: a promise of everlasting happiness, far removed from the usual recipes for gratification.
Blessed are the poor in spirit! Blessed are those who mourn!
Happy are the meek!...
The Beatitudes, as we've come to know these promises, are the true answer to the sufferings of the world today. They reveal the face of God- Made of gentleness, mercy, and humility- and propose that the only effective path to human maturity, inner freedom, and peace of heart, is to live by them
Fr. Jacques shares with us a profound clarity to the full scope of meaning behind Christ’s eight beatitudes, and in turn, outlines for us a way in which we can live them in our daily lives. We learn how each beatitude gives insight into how we can situate ourselves in an honest and fulfilling relationship with God, with oneself, and with others, and how to confront head-on the difficult realities of life.
