Liverpool's beatitudes

YOUR correspondent, Robert Copsey (Catholic Herald. August 21), refers to Archbishop Worlock's address at Swanwick earlier this month.

He attributes to the Archbishop the question: how can we make sense of the Beatitudes?

I feel it is misleading to take this out of context and in fact that question was never posed, Rather the Archbishop in his text (entitled: The Gospel as Public Truth) and in the questions afterwards, spoke of his view that although the Commandments remained vital, the beatitudes in the Gospel were an easier model by which the present generation can understand and live out Gospel values.

He went on to instance contemporary equivalents to the Beatitudes which people relate to today.
