blessed are ….

I have awoken to a lot of news today flying around and the reactions to those events. There are plenty of people here who are far better qualified to comment on such events and upon the various reactions, not least those who have been personally affected. The celebration of any death, though, does leave me feeling rather cold.

Maybe today, though, could be a day to remember the words of Jesus …

Blessed are the poor in spirit
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven

Blessed are those who mourn
for they shall be comforted

Blessed are the meek
for they will inherit the earth

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness
for they will be filled

Blessed are the merciful
for they shall receive mercy

Blessed are the pure of heart
for they will see God

Blessed are the peacemakers
for they will be called children of God

Blessed are those who are persecuted for rigtheousness’ sake
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

(Matthew 5:3-12)
