The Sermon on the Mount, Jan Brueghel the Elder Ä. (1598)

Beatitude (from idg. Salin "luck, salvation") describes a state of perfect redemption or salvation, but also of happiness . In Christianity, bliss should come to perfection in the kingdom of heaven , but it is already a promise for this life, as is expressed in particular in the Beatitudes at the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount .

The beatification process is in the Catholic Church , says a church legal process at the conclusion of the pope that a deceased person be called blessed and must be honored as such in public. With a beatification, the church expresses the trust that the person concerned has already reached perfection with God .
