If the Sermon on the Mount is the crown of Christ's teachings, then the Beatitudes are the crown jewels. These eight powerful statements of blessing form a nucleus that is at the heart of the entire Catholic Faith. The Beatitudes are an invitation for Catholics to a deeper relationship with Christ and a loving relationship with others. They reveal the calling of every Christian and provide a blueprint for fulfillment and a lasting happiness that only God can provide. In Be Blessed, Thomas Smith unpacks the richness of these teachings of Christ in a way that is practical, compelling, and transformative.
