The Beatitudes

Blessed Are Those Who Suffer

The Beatitudes was written Rev. Enrico F. Garzilli. It was first published in 1970 as part of his collection, For To Those Who Love God. He remains active as a composer, writer, and performer. One his most recent works is the musical, Rage of the Heart; based on the true story of the 12th century tragic romance of Abelard and Heloise. The following video features a setting of the Miserere from that stage work. In the Liturgy of the Hours, The Beatitudes is used in the Common of Virgins and the Common of Holy Women.
