Commonsense be-attitudes!


The Beatitudes are the Gospel's commentary on "attitude"

-Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves; they will always have entertainment.

-Blessed are those who can distinguish between a mountain and a molehill; they will save themselves a lot of trouble.

-Blessed are those who can rest and sleep without looking for excuses; they will become wise.

-Blessed are those who are intelligent enough not to take themselves too seriously; they will be appreciated.

-Blessed are you if you can look seriously at small things and peacefully at serious things; you will go far in life.

-Blessed are you if you can admire a smile and forget a scowl; your path will be sunlit.

-Blessed are you if you can always interpret the attitudes of others with good will, even when appearances are to the contrary; you may seem naive, but that is the price of charity.

-Blessed are those who think before acting and who laugh before thinking; they will avoid foolish mistakes.

-Blessed are you if you know how to be silent and smile, even when you are interrupted, contradicted or walked on; the gospel is beginning to take root in your heart.

-Blessed are you especially if you know how to recognize the Lord in all those you meet; you have found the true light, true wisdom.
