Synopses & Reviews
In this remarkable book Fr. Gerald Vann shows you how to make meekness, poverty of spirit, and the rest of Christ's seven blessings, or Beatitudes, a part of your daily life -- in ways that will surprise you. You'll soon find yourself on track to a happiness more lasting and more real than is given by any of the world's pleasures -- or even by an easier but less satisfying spiritual path.
To achieve happiness, readers need simply to let celebrated spiritual writer Gerald Vann reveal the full meaning of each of the seven blessings Christ promises in the Beatitudes. Fr. Vann explains their deeper (and sometimes puzzling) elements and shows how each blessing (or beatitude) relates to the life of virtue, to prayer, and to the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
