1. Hearing the Beatitudes at Divine Liturgy has, from the first, been one of my favorite parts of Orthodoxy. They are the core of the Gospel.

  2. Beautiful! Thank you very much. It suddenly struck me as I listened that this video (or just to chant these verses) is a very good place to come when one’s heart is breaking. What a balm for the wounded soul! Yes, and how gently, reverently and purely the verses are sung. The monks’ stillness is evident. Blessed are You, O Lord, unto ages of ages. Amen.

  3. For the first time yesterday, I became very aware of the Beatitudes in the Divine Liturgy. I decided I need to put myself to the task of memorizing them.

    As blessed King David said, “I will lay up Thy word in my heart that I might not sin against thee.” Ps. 119:11

  4. Yes, priceless! All the images are beautiful, but two that struck me most deeply were the first at “for they shall be filled” and the face of the “grandmother” lighting her candle near the end.
