This is a YouTube that you can use with young people- It’s not overtly Christmas season-y (well, sorta) but might serve you well in Lent… so plan ahead.

It really comes down towards your sense of vision and a God sense of vision.
Here we are in the Christmas season, still in the after-glow of a very non-threatening Baby Jesus, yet a crucified and risen Jesus turns that image upside-down.
The Beatitudes are the world’s expectations turned upside-down into the vision for God’s reign among the blessed and happy
For the life of me, I have no idea how an artist has this sort of vision… But I do hope and pray for it.
Open my eyes, Lord, help me to see like you. Open my eyes, Lord, help me to see…
