Do You Know the Eight Beatitudes? Watch This Video

Very few people, unfortunately, know key parts of the Bible today [1] — including the eight Beatitudes, which are among the most profound teachings of Jesus Christ as recounted in the Sermon on the Mount, as told in the Gospel of Matthew.

The Catholic Creatives movement — a community of professional filmmakers, artists, entrepreneurs, and designers — has made a full-length anthology film about this critical part of the scriptures, called “8Beats.” It’s a film about the Beatitudes, divided into eight short films made by eight different teams. A total of 130 millennial creatives across the U.S. and Canada joined together to work on the project.

“Why collaborate?” the group ponders its innovative, faith-grounded process on its website. “When we work together, we are given the chance to hone our craft [and] gain new perspectives, new methods, and new relationships. These are essential to the development of our careers and the health of our souls. By collaborating, we also get to work on projects of a scale that we could never reach on our own.”

The eight Beatitudes, as told in the Gospel of Matthew (5:3-10), are these:

“No one has ever filmed the Beatitudes in a way [that] speaks to the modern experience,” says a marketing professional and member of the group.

“Do people know about the eight Beatitudes? We went to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City to find out. You will never guess what we learned,” reads the video’s description.
