Friday, September 04, 2020

The Beatitudes | "To live an integrated life, to live a peaceful life, we must live a sacramental life." Br Albert reflects on the peacemakers and the Seventh Beatitude.

'I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly' (Jn 10:10)

Refresh your spiritual vision this summer with our series of meditations on the Beatitudes. Starting this week and until early September, we shall release a weekly audio meditation to help you reflect on the vision of Gospel joy that lies at the foundation of all Christian discipleship

Today, Br Albert Elias Robertson reflects on the Seventh Beatitude: Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God (Matthew 5:9).
