About the Beatitudes

Most commonly associated with the sayings of Jesus at the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount, the word "beatitude" is derived from the Latin word 'beatus' (meaning 'blessed'). "[These] Beatitudes of Jesus are at the very heart of Jesus' teachings and show us the way of Christian life as well as the rewards of living that life. They help to sustain hope of those undergoing tribulations by promising great rewards to Jesus' faithful followers. They may also remind us that our ultimate happiness may rise up from what we see as our crosses. In contrast to what the world teaches us, our Lord Jesus teaches us that the path to Heaven is not made up of riches or other comforts, but instead in a spirit of poverty, self-sacrifice, and meekness." Clearly, the Beatitudes are instrumental in helping us make good life choices in keeping with our ultimate goal of partaking in eternal life with our blessed Lord Jesus. Faithful Catholics should memorize the Beatitudes and consider them often. Note: For assistance with the beatitudes, consult appropriate, competent Church authorities.

As indicated above, the term "Beatitudes" is usually associated with the sayings of Jesus at the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount. However, there are a number of other biblical "beatitudes" (or "blessings"). The following lists (1) Jesus' Beatitudes (traditionally worded, traditional & modern Scripture translations), and (2) Various other Biblical "beatitudes" (or blessings).

"...since it is you, O LORD, who blessed it, it is blessed forever." (1 Chron. 17:27)

The Beatitudes

According to Our Lord, Per Scripture [Traditional Translation (DR)]

 

Mt. 5:3-12

Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the clean of heart: they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake: Be glad and rejoice for your reward is very great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you.

Lk. 6:20-23

Blessed are ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.

Blessed are ye that hunger now: for you shall be filled. 

Blessed are ye that weep now: for you shall laugh.

Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you and shall reproach you and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

Be glad in that day and rejoice: for behold, your reward is great in heaven, For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets.

Note: Jesus concludes these beatitudes with the following woes: "But woe to you that are rich: for you have your consolation. Woe to you that are filled: for you shall hunger. Woe to you that now laugh: for you shall mourn and weep. Woe to you when men shall bless you: for according to these things did their fathers to the false prophets." (Lk. 6:24-26)
