Pat Gohn offers a short strong coffee break of faith sharing and teaching in this podcast series on the Beatitudes.
Today’s topic: The Beatitudes – “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.”
In this espresso shot, I examine the third Beatitude from Matthew 5:7: “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.”
This is the sixth podcast in a 9-podcast series devoted to reviewing the eight Beatitudes that open Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew. In this podcast, I’m examining how mercy reflects Jesus, and how it ought to be an attitude and disposition in our lives, and how this beatitude points us toward heaven.
Be sure to explore the links below about the image of Jesus as the Divine Mercy, and devotion to the Divine Mercy.
