Among Women Espresso Shot #37: Blessed are the poor in spirit

Welcome to Episode 37 of Among Women “Espresso Shot”
– a short strong coffee break of faith sharing and teaching from Pat Gohn.

Today’s topic: The Beatitudes – “Blessed are the poor in spirit…”

In this espresso shot, I begin a look at the first Beatitude from Matthew 5:3: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

This podcast examines the inspiration Jesus, where we put our trust, and the call to be humble — like Jesus. My reflections based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraphs 544, 2546 and 2547.
