Francis has Six New Beatitudes
Offering the Novus Ordo worship service for his adherents in Malmö, Sweden, on November 1, Francis preached a sermon in which he introduced six new quasi-beatitudes for the “modern Christian.” No, he didn’t officially introduce new beatitudes — and Jimmy Akin will no doubt take great pleasure in pointing it out — but that’s not even the main concern here, because the effect will be similar.
Here is the relevant excerpt from the homily, straight from the Vatican web site:
The Beatitudes are in some sense the Christian’s identity card.
