On All Saints Day this year, at a mass in Malmo Sweden, in celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Pope Francis proposed six new Beatitudes for us in this new, twenty-first century world–six new Beatitudes even more important, even more urgent, in the aftermath of our election.
Blessed are those who remain faithful while enduring evils inflicted on them by others and forgive them from their heart.
Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalized and show them their closeness.
Blessed are those who see God in every person and strive to make others also discover him.
Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home.
Blessed are those who renounce their own comfort in order to help others.
Blessed are those who pray for full communion between Christians.
