Today’s topic: The Beatitudes – “Blessed are the poor in spirit …”

In this espresso shot, I begin a look at the first Beatitude from Matthew 5:3: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

This podcast examines the inspiration Jesus, where we put our trust, and the call to be humble — like Jesus. My reflections are based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraphs 544, 2546 and 2547.
