The Eight Beatitudes of Jesus

(Matthew 5:3 – 5:10)

Pope Francis said,

“The Beatitudes are Jesus’ portrait, his way of life, and they are the way of true happiness, which we also can live with the grace that Jesus gives us.”

As we begin the start of our new academic year, let us reflect upon these attitudes and the attitudes we wish to share with everyone we encounter each day.

Pause and reflect upon your own attitudes as you begin this year. During the year we will be looking at the Beatitudes more closely to see what they actual
mean in our everyday lives.
