Declaration of the Blessed!

And Jesus opened His mouth and taught them, saying:

* Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

* Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

* Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

* Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

* Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

* Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

* Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

* Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

* Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Matthew 5:3-12

May the Word of God stir your soul and encourage you to continue in His footsteps only.
