By The Hagios Study
In this study, we'll take an 8-week pilgrimage to Tabgha, Israel, and Northern Italy to explore The Beatitudes as well as how Francis of Assisi can be our example of a holy and intentional response to God's word.
The study was written to be ecumenical. So, although initially for Catholic small group or personal study, these studies can easily be embraced by other Christian denominations. The book also pairs with a free mobile app that includes music meditations and other resources for the reader.
Ultimately, this study aims to inspire you to be holy. “But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: ‘Be holy, because I am holy (hagios).” 1 Peter 1:15-16
Along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, Jesus sat down with his disciples, trailed by crowds seeking his next miracle, to begin what is famously known as The Sermon on the Mount. Jesus began this series of teachings with what has been called, “The Beatitudes,” eight principles that ring familiar of the Psalms and other Old Testament biblical wisdom.

"I'm a Catholic priest and was blessed to lead a group of parishioners through the Hagios study on the Beatitudes and St. Francis of Assisi. We loved it! The study does a beautiful job of opening up the key words in each Beatitude so that it really comes to life. It's amazing how much depth there is in a handful of verses when you understand them in light of other Scripture passages and see it made visible in the life of St. Francis. The Hagios study does a great job of leading participants through a very accessible word study and then makes the application to the life of St. Francis. The app and extra resources are great and really help bring the study to life. I would recommend it to parishes that are looking for a good and easily accessible Bible study, as well as to individuals who just want to go deeper themselves."
