Transcript of 8th Beatitude!

the eighth beatitude Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven Closing Prayer John 15: 1- 17 (The Vine and the Branches) 1“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. 9 Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. 11 These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. 12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. 17 This I command you, that you love one another.
John 15: 18- 20 18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also.

John 16: 20- 24 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have [a]sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well. O Holy Spirit,
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us this chance to understand the true meaning of the eighth beatitude. Now that we know it's meaning, please forgive us for those times where we failed to stay loyal. Please teach us to live out this beatitude like Jesus did so that others may find Jesus in us. Keep our faith strong so that we may learn to stand up for it and love unconditionally. Help us realize that we don't have to fit in here on earth, but with You.

Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, Pray for us! O Holy Spirit, please guide us today as we learn the eighth beatitude. Please enlighten us and open our minds so that we may realize that our actions should always lean towards doing God’s Will rather than pleasing the people around us even if these actions may cause us suffering. Through this realization, we pray that You guide us towards a deeper level of love for Christ and for people around us. Amen. Opening Prayer what do these people have in common? what does it mean to be PERSECUTED? according to the dictionary: harassed or ill-treated for religious reasons
when we experience emotional pain and physical suffering because we choose to do what is right
"choosing to do what is right"
staying loyal to Christ and the Kingdom of God even if it means leaving whom we love behind and material possesions that cause us to sin
"For by living righteously the believers seperate themselves from the world and profess themselves not to belong to the world accepting pain and suffering leads us to a deeper level of loving. Loving not only in happy situations but loving unconditionally even if it hurts us THE EIGHTH BEATITUDE: This beatitude tells us to strive to take action to fit in the Kingdom of God rather than work so hard to try to fit in with our “friends”.
Those who choose to act as devoted Christians will not have an easy life. Though, Jesus promised salvation and the Kingdom of Heaven to those who totally commit themselves to fulfill God’s Will.
KINGDOM OF GOD- a condition i which God is Lord of all, a condition of order, peace, and love among people “Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it” - Luke 9:24
“ In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” - 2 Timothy 3:12
JESUS TEACHING THE EIGTH BEATITUDE JESUS LIVING THE EIGHTH BEATITUDE Jesus was accused of Working with the Devils (Mark 3:20-22) 20 And He came home, and the crowd gathered again, to such an extent that they could not even eat a meal. 21 When His own people heard of this, they went out to take custody of Him; for they were saying, “He has lost His senses.” 22 The scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, “He is possessed by Beelzebul,” and “He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons.”
Jesus was accused of blasphemy (Mark 14: 63-64) 63 Tearing his clothes, the high priest said, “What further need do we have of witnesses? 64 You have heard the blasphemy; how does it seem to you?” And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death.
-Jesus is mocked (Mark 15:16-20) 16 The soldiers took Him away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium), and they called together the whole Roman cohort. 17 They dressed Him up in purple, and after twisting a crown of thorns, they put it on Him; 18 and they began to acclaim Him, “Hail, King of the Jews!” 19 They kept beating His head with a reed, and spitting on Him, and kneeling and bowing before Him. 20 After they had mocked Him, they took the purple robe off Him and put His own garments on Him. And they led Him out to crucify Him. SITUATIONS students who refuse to have their homework copied
