Resumen

KUGLER, Joachim. The (possible) function of the beatitude of the poor in the context of the struggle against poverty. Acta theol. [online]. 2012, vol.32, suppl.16, pp.01-16. ISSN 2309-9089.

The article focuses on the beatitude of the poor in the social and religious context of historical Jesus. The original version of this makarism has to be seen as a religious statement which is not meant as a program of social reform. Yet it has political and socio-ethical implications as it connects the poor with God and his kingdom. Those who are searching God have to go to the poor. A possible function of the beatitude of the poor in the struggle against poverty can be seen in the spiritual empowerment it gives to the poor themselves: Poverty is against God's will; it is no divine punishment and does not separate from God. The poor will be liberated from suffering. Poverty has no place in the kingdom but will be eradicated.

Palabras clave : Beatitude of the poor; Gospel; Poor.
