What’s so great about being poor, or hungry, or sad? On the surface, these Beatitudes of Jesus seem very strange: "How happy are you who are poor." Surely it is better to be wealthy, to be well fed, and to enjoy good times—or to at least be comfortable and content?

But Jesus is not interested in comfort, or in maintaining the status qu. The Jesus of Luke’s Gospel is something of quo revolutionary. He has come to turn the social order on its head: last becomes first and least becomes greatest. His concern is always for the poor and marginalised.

Jesus’ vision is of a world where the unjust structures that cause poverty, hunger and oppression are swept away. Sadly, as we hear on the news every day, inequalities in our world with regard to wealth, education, health and opportunities remain as stark as ever. Speaking about how we can tackle injustice to-day, Poper Francis has offered six "new Beatitides" for the modern Christian. Like the teachings of Jesus, they remind us that the task of the Christian is to tackle injustice and to act in solidarity with those on the mar-gins of society.

Pope Francis’ "new Beatitudes" include:
Blessed are those who renounce their own com-fort in order to help others.
Blessed are those who look in to the eyes of the abandoned and show them their closeness.
Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home.

-Tríona Doherty.
