How to Live the Beatitudes

Can I be happy?
by Elizabeth Stromberg | Source:

There was a young man who had exceptional language talents and his teacher encouraged him to go on to major in language and become a teacher. “Are you kidding? I’ll never make money that way!” and he became a job consultant in NY. That is, until the economic crises hit. Jobless, he’s returning to his hometown, in search of a job, and perhaps in search of something more.

People are generally happy with their money, their job, their life…

But when they’re gone?

Christ has a surprising answer for you up his sleeve. He says that you actually can be happy without all those things.  Yah, you read that right. Do you remember those “blessed are they who…” things from Sunday school? “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for the kingdom of God is theirs. Blessed are they who mourn for they shall be comforted…” Well, the beatitudes are not so much about the poverty, persecution, and tears, as they are about joy, happiness, and satisfaction.

And let’s face it; who doesn’t want to be happy? Who doesn’t enjoy it when things work out their way? Who doesn’t enjoy a moment with the one they love? Who isn’t happy to finally receive that job or grade they’ve been working for?

But is there a happiness that lasts when all those things are taken away? Can you be happy when you are lonely, without a job, and are a failure?

“Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall laugh” Christ thinks you can; maybe you should look into it! No one else has offered to do that!

Christ not only offers you happiness, but satisfaction. “Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied” There is a difference between being happy and being satisfied. Happiness is the beginning of something good or exciting and satisfaction denotes a job well done.

Sometimes we begin “happy” but often end up unsatisfied, especially when you lose everything in an economic crises or suffer the loss of a loved one. But there is a happiness with satisfaction.

How do you get this Christian happiness and satisfaction? There’s no quick mac and cheese answer to that, but I can tell you that it begins and ends with Christ. Because in discovering the person of Christ, one discovers the one who is the greatest treasure and who will always be there. He made our hearts, and he knows what can make them happy now, and satisfied for all eternity.

It may sound too simplistic, but if nothing else has worked, why not give Him a try? It just might be worth it.

Next time something makes you upset, try stopping to think if at the end of your life this little thing is really going to have made a difference and if it’s worth your being upset about it.

Next time you feel the pinch of the wallet, try to compensate with a spiritual treasure-going to Mass an extra time this week or just saying a small prayer.

Little by little by living the beatitudes in your daily life, you will begin to experience happiness with satisfaction.

Gospel of St. Matthew (5:3-10). •Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Verse 3) •Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land. (Verse 4) •Blessed are they who mourn: for they shall be comforted. (Verse 5) •Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill. (Verse 6) •Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. (Verse 7) •Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God. (Verse 8) •Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (Verse 9) •Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Verse 10)
