Pope offers new Beatitudes for saints of a new age: MALMO, Sweden (CNS) -- The saints are blessed because they were faithful and meek and cared for others, Pope Francis said. At the end of an ecumenical trip to Sweden, Pope Francis celebrated the feast of All Saints Day with a Mass and six new beatitudes:

-- "Blessed are those who remain faithful while enduring evils inflicted on them by others and forgive them from their heart.

-- "Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalized and show them their closeness.

-- "Blessed are those who see God in every person and strive to make others also discover him.

-- "Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home.

-- "Blessed are those who renounce their own comfort in order to help others.

-- "Blessed are those who pray and work for full communion between Christians."
