BEAT 5: The way of compassion - 'Blessed are the merciful'

Most of us live with a sense that something inside us is broken. We don’t always treat other people the way we want to be treated, and people don’t always treat us with the love and respect we feel we deserve. Jesus said, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”

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.
