The Beatitudes - Thursdays, August 16 - August 30

10:00 a.m. - Noon | Ministry Level - In his recent exhortation on the Call to Holiness, Pope Francis placed the Beatitudes at the heart of his document. Though phrased in simple words, these brief statements of Jesus carry profound meanings. What do they have to do with holiness? How do we resolve their seeming contradictions? Why do Matthew and Luke offer different versions? What do the words themselves actually mean? How can we pray with them so that they bear fruit in our lives? This course will examine these questions!
