How to Pray
In a recent conversation, Pope Francis reflected..."In addition to memorizing the 10 Commandments, Christians should also memorize the Beatitudes."
We live by the law of the 10 Commandments. How would our world look if we live by the spirit of the Beatitudes?
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
