The Beatitudes at 20:11

What I'm doing at 20:11 in 2011... It's Monday night, so I'm at RCIA. We went back to the second session a bit early because there is much to cover tonight. We held a Rite of Acceptance yesterday and welcomed several more people into the Catechumenate.

We talked in depth about the Beatitudes... Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. (Gospel of Matthew) The "how to" for Christian living. To play the Devil's Advocate (which I do so often) I suggested that I would sure like everyone around me to hold all of those characteristics, but I'm not so interested in practicing them myself. We agreed that we are all a work in progress, and as long as we are striving for these ideals, we'll probably be in good shape. (At least, that is my prayer.)
