Reflecting on the third, fourth, and fifth beatitudes, she links them with specific gifts of the Holy Spirit given to us at baptism to grow in each beatitude. Listen now and begin the discussion with Christ about which beatitude he wants to restore within you.
How to actually receive the promise of ultimate happiness promised by Christ.
Two parter on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and the Beatitudes
Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down his disciples came to him. And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you.Matthew 5:3-12
Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament
There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse,Isaiah 11:1-2
and a branch shall grow out of his roots.
And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,
the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and might,
the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
