Pop-Up Catechesis: The Beatitudes

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

Our eyes can easily be fooled by optical illusions and mirages. We may see one thing until our eyes adjust or someone points out another way of looking at an image. This is what Jesus’ Beatitudes are all about. He is saying to us, “Don’t be fooled by what the world says will make you happy.” In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we explore the Beatitudes as Jesus’ way of teaching us to see in a way that is vastly different from the way the world teaches us to see.
