Beatitudes provide 'new horizon of justice,' teaches Pope at Angelus


My home Internet connection was inadvertantly disabled on the afternoon of February 11. I'll be writing posts via the library's computer as much as I can until my own computer is up and running again. Until then, God's blessings and thanks so much for your patience.



Vatican City, Feb 14, 2010 / 11:21 am (CNA).- The Holy Father followed a visit to the Caritas homeless shelter in Rome on Sunday morning with the traditional midday Angelus at the Vatican. He spoke of Jesus' presentation of the Beatitudes and the importance of implementing their lessons and seeking justice in society.

The Beatitudes, announced in the Gospel of Luke, are based on the existence of “a divine justice that picks those who have been wrongly humiliated back up and humbles those who exalt themselves," said the Pope before the Angelus.

"The first will be last and the last will be first," quoted the Holy Father, adding that "this justice and this beatitude will be realized in the 'Kingdom of Heaven'... that will reach its fulfilment at the end of time but that is already present in history."

"Where the poor are consoled and admitted to the banquet of life, there, already, is manifested the justice of God," underscored the Pope. "This is the task that the disciples of the Lord are called to carry out also in today's society."

I started a petition asking the Pope to publicly celebrate a Tridentine Mass in the intention of all the clergy of the Catholic Church. If you agree with the intent to leak the link ask that I write the petition below:
