Kingdom of Happiness - Living the Beatitudes in Everyday Life
By Jeffrey Kirby, STD. Are you happy? What is happiness? You are invited to discover the road to happiness by following the eight signposts leading to the Kingdom. The eight signposts are the eight Beatitudes that Jesus taught His followers. To begin, Fr. Kirby identifies the anti-beatitudes of a fallen, busy world. These anti-beatitudes steal your happiness. You are led out of this darkness by the eight signposts which lead to Jesus Christ. Each Beatitude, from “Blessed are the poor in spirit” to “Blessed are the persecuted,” is unwrapped through storytelling, scripture, and prayer. The Beatitudes offer real hope, comfort, and peace in a fallen world. Softcover, 161 pages.
