The Beatitudes

I'm not sure if this is a common article that "everyone" has seen or not, but I found it amazing. I had never had the Beatitudes explained to me like this. Definitely worth sharing.
Authentic zeal is not directed towards anything but union in Christ, or against anything but our own fallenness.

Thank you. Interesting read.  It reminds me somewhat of the Ladder of Divine Ascent
