Description: Two articles — Living the Beatitudes & Growing through the Beatitudes — in one handout! This 4-page (two sheets of paper printed double-sided) reflection on the Beatitudes explains each blessing for everyday life.
In Matthew 5:1-12, Jesus first notices the crowd. We can imagine that he feels a great concern for each person. He understands their needs, and he wants to help them. The best teaching he can give them is one that will guide them into a more love-filled life, in which they are closer to God than ever before. He is addressing the needs we still have today.
Ideas for use: Retreats, parish missions, evangelization outreach, faith formation programs, RCIA, etc.
