Rather, those who are poor in spirit believe that "the Lord is the treasure of life, and that love of neighbor is the only true source of income."
"At times we are unhappy about something we lack or are worried whether or not we are though of as we would like (to be)," he said, and urged pilgrims to remember that true beatitude is not found in these things, but only "in the Lord and in love."
Pope Francis closed his address pointing to a final "beatitude" that is not found in the Gospel, but in Chapter 14 of the Book of Revelation, which reads: "blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth."
Looking toward tomorrow's celebration of All Souls' Day, Francis said Christians pray for their departed loved ones "so that they enjoy the Lord forever."
After leading pilgrims in the Angelus, Pope Francis voiced his sorrow for the terrorist attacks that have taken place over the past week in Somalia, Afghanistan, and the US, saying he is "deeply saddened" by the attacks.
"In deploring these acts of violence, I pray for the deceased, for the wounded and for their families," he said, and prayed for the Lord to "convert the hearts of terrorists and free the world from hatred and the murderous folly that abuses the name of God so as to spread death."
He noted that for All Souls' Day he will visit the Sicily-Rome American Cemetery and Memorial in Nettuno, where he will celebrate Mass to remember the faithfully departed, and how afterward he will stop at the Fosse Ardeantine Museum and memorial commemorating the site of a Nazi massacre during World War II.
Pope Francis asked that pilgrims and faithful accompany him in prayer as he remembers the victims of war and violence honored in the two locations.
"Wars do not produce anything other than cemeteries and death. This is why I wanted to offer this sign at a time when humanity seems to have not learned it's lesson, or does not want to learn it," he said, and asked for prayer.
