UNIT 1 - BE WITH ME 

The Beatitudes
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, 
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 

Blessed are they, who mourn, 
For they shall be comforted. 

Blessed are the meek, 
For they shall inherit the earth. 

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, 
for they shall be satisfied. 

Blessed are the merciful, 
for they shall obtain mercy. 

Blessed are the pure of heart, 
for they shall see God. 

Blessed are the peacemakers, 
for they shall be called children of God. 

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,  for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

The word beatitude means “blessing” or “promise of true happiness” They are given to us often as directions for life. The Beatitudes and Ten Commandments both guide us to the way God wants to be as people and how he wants us to act in the house of God. Virtues are attitudes and habits that make us likely to do what is good even when we don’t stop to think. The virtues are: hope, love, generosity, justice, honesty and  respect. To become a virtuous person, it takes prayer, education and practice.

Emotions are important because we might be indifferent to both good and evil, they let us be drawn to be good and repelled by what is evil. 

Love is a call to be one with God, the source of all love.  Hate reminds us that evil is real, and that we need God’s help to overcome evil and that life apart from God is painful.  Anger and Fear remind us that we don’t have the ability or the right to control everything, they are calls to place eternal hope and trust in God so we can find true and everlasting peace Joy is a call to stand in God’s presence.

Sorrow reminds us that only God can fill our emptiness, to seek comfort in him.  Desire  reminds us that only God can satisfy our deepest longings. 

Psalm 22 helps us express different emotions expresses loneliness, fear and sadness. The author and all of who pray for it ask for God’s help and know that the hard times will pass. A vice is a an immoral or evil habit or practice, or the opposite of virtues. The significance of the acronym is to...

UNIT 3 - BE FAITHFUL 

Faith is a virtue because it is an attitude, that encourages us to involve God in our daily lives. We can develop faith by to respond with love and respect, we should love and respect all creatures for and because of God. Faith in God calls us to respond with love and respect. Uncertainty principle is that there are things that we cannot know or measure exactly. 

UNIT 4 - BE LOVING

Love is the basic christian virtue, this virtue is important to us because unless we approach every situation with a loving attitude, we cannot hope to make the choices God wants us to make.
