Blessed are the Merciful
The millennial and younger generation is marked by a more visible social concern and volunteerism, but it often doesn’t influence the way they choose to live. In this Beatitude, Jesus pronounces a blessing on the merciful, those who allow the miseries of others to affect them and change the way they live. He presents a vision both challenge and hopeful, especially to us living in America today.
