Introduction

Anyone who is even remotely familiar with the teachings of Jesus has heard of the Sermon on the Mount. And anyone who has heard of the Sermon on the Mount has probably also heard of the Beatitudes, as they are the nine declarations of blessedness with which the Sermon on the Mount begins. The Beatitudes lists the nine categories of people by Christ to be Blessed, Happy and Fortunate. It was the most important sermon made on the mount. It is a message from Christ saying that he will be though it all with us weather we need him or not he will be there by our side and holding our hand, and although we can't see him or yet feel his kind touch he will be there for us: Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ...read more.

Blessed are those who are persecuted in the cause of righteousness: Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and faulsy say all kinds of evil against you because of me: This is my favorite as it gives an understanding that Jesus wants us to stick by our religion thorough thick or thin. Jesus gave us these nine Beatitudes for a reason not only to respect them ourselves but to let others respect them as well. This lists the nine types of people that god has chosen to be aloud into heaven. The ninth Beatitude grabs my attention as it describes that no matter how hard it becomes Jesus wants us to stick by him as he would do so for us. Caitriona Mc Kenna 11J Mr. Corrigan ...read more.
