Pope Francis has called the eight Beatitudes a "program for holiness" and "the path to true happiness." In short, they express the essence of Christ's teachings.

In The Beatitudes for Families, the Beatitudes are beautifully presented with original artwork. On one side, you will find the words of Christ as found in Matthew 5:3-10. On the other side, you will find an adapted version of the Beatitudes written specifically for families by Tom McGrath, author of Raising Faith-Filled Kids.

The Beatitudes for Families measures 8.5" x 11" and is printed on sturdy paper and laminated. Sold in packs of 50, each pack comes with a reproducible slip sheet that offers parents and teachers practical ideas for how to teach and reflect with children on the Beatitudes as a way of life.
