Transcript of the beatitudes in the world today

From that moment, Alessandro converted and changed his life. When he was released from prison he moved to a Capuchin monastery, working in the garden as a tertiary for the remainder of his life. He was one of the witnesses who testified to Maria's holiness during her cause of beatification, citing the crime and the vision in prison. Alessandro is said to have prayed to Maria every single day referring to her as ‘my little saint’.
St.Maria Goretti
The beatitudes
For this reason the beatitudes "Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God" and "Blessed are those who persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven" fit her the most.
Death
On July 5, 1902, Alessandro Serenelli seeing that no one except Maria and her baby sister were in the house he came inside intending to rape her. But she fought shouting, "No! It is a sin! God does not want it!" and warning him that this was the path towards hell. When Maria said that she would rather die than submit to this sin, Alessandro stabbed her fourteen times with a knife. Maria was found bleeding to death and rushed to the hospital. As she lay dying, she forgave Alessandro for the crime he had committed. She passed away two days later. Alessandro was send to prison. One night he had a vision, Maria appeared to him dressed in white, gathering lilies in a garden. She smiled and offered him the flowers. Each lily he took transformed into a white flame. Then Maria disappeared.

Reflection
Blessed are the pure of heart, for they will see God:– Integrity. To be clean of heart is to be free of the things that pollute our heart – pettiness, jealousy, bitterness, depression and dishonesty. When we act with integrity in all we do we are whole. If we do not follow this beatitude we would never be able to trust or love anyone and we would hurt our selves mentally and physically.

Bl. Mother Teresa
The beatitudes
In my opinion, I think that there are two beatitudes that she fits most; “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” and “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God”. Mother Teresa fits these two beatitudes because she gave the sick and weak strength to carry on. She made them believers of God by giving them hope of a better tomorrow. She comforted them in her arms, as they took their last breath; and ensured them that they were going to a better place; heaven. Mother Teresa dedicated her life to others by helping those who were less fortunate. She stood up for what was right no matter what the consequences; she knew that God was by her side. She fed the hungry, clothed those of need, bathed the sick, and cared for the wounded. These actions best represent the two beatitudes mentioned previously.

The beatitudes
in the world today
By:Taranom Farhoudi
6th of July marks the feast day of st. Maria Goretti, a young virgin whose life is an great example of purity and mercy for all christians. Her life reoresents what it means to be "pure of heart". Maria Goretti is known for her commitment to purity and the courageous defence of her faith at the age of twelve that made her willing to undergo death that to participate in a sin against God. She is also known for the forgiveness she granted her attacker while she was on her death bed.
She was canonized by Pope Pius XII, becoming the youngest Roman Catholic saint officially recognized by name. Her feast day is celebrated by the Church on July 6, and she is the patron saint of purity, rape victims, young women, and youth in general. Her life provides an great example of what it means to be "pure of heart."
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness: It is important to follow this beatitude because we learn to do the right thing no matter what and stand up for what is right, to have courage, and so it will stop numerous sins from happening and we could lead other people to the Kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are the pure of heart, for they will see God:– Integrity. To be clean of heart is to be free of the things that pollute our heart – pettiness, jealousy, bitterness, depression and dishonesty. When we act with integrity in all we do we are whole. If we do not follow this beatitude we would never be able to trust or love anyone and we would hurt our selves mentally and physically.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. – Authority. It indicates that while we are building our relationship with God, we’re to always remember His authority. This means that we don’t become attached to our desires for the things of this world, money, power, fame, etc. This beatitude not only helps us stay connected with god but helps us with the people around us. If we desire something so much we could forget how to live a joyful and happy life and forget about the poeple around us.

Pope John Paul II, has officially recognized the holiness of our mother, Mother Teresa, and approved the miracle obtained through her intercession. We are filled with joy in anticipation of the Beatification that will take place in Rome on Mission Sunday, 19 October 2003, the closest Sunday to the 25th anniversary of the Holy Father's Pontificate and the end of the Year of the Rosary.

Today, after three and a half years of investigation and study, the Church confirms that Mother heroically lived the Christian life and that God has lifted her up as both a model of holiness and an intercessor for all.
At the age of eighteen she joined the Sisters of Loreto. After a few months they send her to India, where she was a nun. From 1931 to 1948 Mother Teresa taught at St. Mary's High School in Calcutta, but she wanted to help the less fortunate so in1948 she left the convent school and went to work among the poorest of the poor. Even tough she had no funds she started an open-air school for slum children. Soon she was joined by voluntary helpers, and financial support was also forthcoming. This made it possible for her to extend the scope of her work.
On October 7, 1950, Mother Teresa started her own order, "The Missionaries of Charity", whose primary task was to love and care for those persons nobody was prepared to look after. In 1965 the Society became an International Religious Family by a decree of Pope Paul VI. The Missionaries of Charity has spread all over the world.
Mother Teresa's work has been recognized and acclaimed throughout the world and she has received a number of awards and distinctions, including the Pope John XXIII Peace Prize.
