The Pope has proposed six new beatitudes

Whilst I like the content, I'm not convinced of the use of the term beatitudes.

The list beatitudes is: 

  • Blessed are those who remain faithful while enduring evils inflicted on them by others and forgive them from their heart.
  • Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalised and show them their closeness.
  • Blessed are those who see God in every person and strive to make others also discover him.
  • Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home.
  • Blessed are those who renounce their own comfort in order to help others.
  • Blessed are those who pray and work for full communion between Christians.

What are your thoughts on these additional / new beatitudes proposed by the Pope?
