BEAT 1: The way of trust - "Blessed are the poor in spirit"
When we come into awareness of not having enough, our first instinct is to close our hands. To grasp at whatever we can find. To hold on to what we have and who we are, and not to share it. Jesus said: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Whatever your story, whatever your struggle, the beatitudes invite us all to a ninefold path of recovery. In them, we hear the whispers of another world, a new way of being human together.
