Blessed are You Blog Tour

Blessed are You: Finding Inspiration from our Sisters in Faith by Melanie Rigney examines each of the beatitudes from the Gospel of Matthew and offers the example of four female saints or blesseds who put that beatitude into practice. Living the beatitudes are "a way to follow Jesus. They lay out an exceedingly difficult way to live," but these women show us that it is doable. Also, the beatitudes are in the present tense."

Rigney reminds us that the beatitudes are in the present tense. "You are blessed now, today and always, just like the women on these pages." Rigney also offers reflection questions and concrete ways to put the beatitudes into practice in our own lives. "Blessed are You" offers the opportunity to learn about some female saints and blesseds you may not have had the pleasure of encountering before, while giving you a roadmap of how to live a more Christ-like life.

In the blog tour, eight Catholic writers (including me) will reflect on each of the chapters. I invite you to follow along:
