Pope’s Beatitude List for Modern Christians
As Christian saints have done throughout the ages, Christ’s followers today are called “to confront the troubles and anxieties of our age with the spirit and love of Jesus.”
New situations require new energy and a new commitment, the pope said at Mass in Malmo, Sweden, and then he offered a list of beatitudes for modern Christians:
– “Blessed are those who remain faithful while enduring evils inflicted on them by others and forgive them from their heart.
– “Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalised and show them their closeness.
– “Blessed are those who see God in every person and strive to make others also discover him.
– “Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home.
– “Blessed are those who renounce their own comfort in order to help others.
– “Blessed are those who pray and work for full communion between Christians.”
