The Gospel of Matthew chapters 5-7 give us Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount which begins with the Beatitudes.

 

In May of 1990, Pope John Paul II beatified Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati and declared him a “man of the beatitudes” because of the way he lived his life.

     Here is an excerpt from the Pope’s Homily:

 

 

 

 

 

5. “Today’s celebration invites all of us to receive the message which Pier Giorgio Frassati is sending to the men and women of our day, but especially to you young people, who want to make a concrete contribution to the spiritual renewal of our world, which sometimes seems to be falling apart and wasting away because of a lack of ideals. By his example he proclaims that a life lived in Christ’s Spirit, the Spirit of the Beatitudes, is “blessed,” and that only the person who becomes a “man or woman of the Beatitudes” can succeed in communicating love and peace to others. He repeats that it is really worth giving up everything to serve the Lord. He testifies that holiness is possible for everyone, and that only the revolution of charity can enkindle the hope of a better future in the hearts of people.”
