Living the Beatitudes
Number of pages: 32
Live the radical, joyful, and incredible life you’re meant to live.
Are you stressed about the future? Relationships? Are you struggling with others’ expectations of you? Does it feel like life is getting more complicated? Here’s a radical solution: the Beatitudes of Jesus. For over two millennia, the Beatitudes have been helping people get more out of life and achieve true freedom and happiness. Inspired by Pope Francis’ call to all young people of the world to “read the Beatitudes,” this little book offers short reflections, plus simple questions and things you can do to make the Beatitudes your own. You’ll discover:
- What “blessed” really means, and how it can change your life.
- The surprising rewards of being “poor in spirit.”
- How being “meek” means being strong …and much more!
Living the Beatitudes can get you started on an extraordinary adventure: a life of beatitude. This kind of life is anything but mainstream. It’s a life of true freedom. It’s the life God has destined for you.
