8 Reflections on the Beloved Beatitudes

8 Reflections on the Beloved Beatitudes

by Fr. Robert Skeris | The Gospel of the eight Beatitudes is surely one of the best-loved passages in all of Holy Writ, and deservedly so.

The Sermon on the Mount - Home Schooling and the Beatitudes

Home Schooling and the Beatitudes

The Beatitudes are worthy of our study. The first Beatitude, from the Sermon on the Mount by Jesus, encourages us to be poor in spirit. To be poor in spirit, we must empty ourselves of anything and everything that tends to displace Jesus Christ in our lives. Jesus must be first in our lives. He can’t be in second place. He must always be front and center.
