Las Bienaventuranzas

A huge door at Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción in Cuernavaca, Mexico, conveys an important message to the faithful, the words of Matthew 5:3-12. The word used in Spanish, bienaventurado, offers a more accurate meaning of the one important concept in the Beatitudes passage: fortunate (or one who  has recognized his or her good fortune).  Here are some notes from a Bible scholar.
