The Beatitudes are the words of Christ that cut to the very core of the Christian life. But have they become so familiar that we breeze past them, without taking them to heart? The Beatitudes can — and will — transform our lives in a powerful way, if we take the time to connect with them daily.
In The Beatitudes, you will find guided meditations based on the Beatitudes found in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. For each Beatitude you will:
- Focus inward: What is Christ saying to you?
- Focus outward: How does Christ want you to interact with the world?
- Pray, reflect, and act: What is God asking you to do?
The reflections in The Beatitudes are an essential aspect of examining your daily life, preparing for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and deepening your prayer life.
