The Bible Catholic
By William Hemsworth
I was a protestant minister and was ordained as a Baptist and a Lutheran. I am a convert to the Catholic faith, and strive to spread the truth about what the church really teaches. This is done with some theological commentary and dissecti g the Sunday Mass readings. It is my hope that this show helps you grow in your faith.
Meaning of the Beatitudes
In today's #massreadings we read from the beatitudes which are part of the sermon on the mount. We are taught what it is to live the Christian life and follow Christ. #catholic #beatitudes
