The Beatitudes are a set of teachings by Jesus promising happiness to those who follow them and obey the Lord. Jesus Christ delivered the Beatitudes during the Sermon on the Mount.
There are two versions of these teachings, one appearing in the Gospels of Matthew and the other in the Gospel of Luke. Of these, the one from Saint Matthew (Matthew 5:3–12) is used most commonly.
Here are the Eight Beatitudes:
- “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
