The Blessings of Christ

The Blessings of Christ

Blessed are the poor, not the penniless,

But those whose hearts are free.

Blessed are the meek, not the soft,

But those who are patient and tolerant.

Blessed are the merciful,

Not those who forget,

But those who forgive.

Blessed are the pure in heart,

Not those who act like angels,

But those whose lives are transparent.

Blessed are the peacemakers,

Not those who shun conflict,

But those who face it squarely.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for justice,

Not because they suffer, but because they love.

Thus we are blessed by our God.

Who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Amen.
