Luke 6:20-26

Luke’s version of the beatitudes is shorter than Matthew’s likely because of the differences in the two communities. Nonetheless, like Matthew’s, Luke’s blessings and woes “confront us with decisive choices … they purify our hearts in order to teach us to love God above all things.” CCC 1728

The blessings and woes are timeless. Humanity will not change until finding the way to love you first and best, Lord God.
