In honor of All Saints Day, here are the Eight Beatitudes as a reminder of how to attain happiness. I hope you all have a blessed day.
- Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven
- Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
- Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
- Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
- Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
- Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.
- Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.
- Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Lord, make us all instruments of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, let us sow pardon; where there is doubt, let us show faith; where there is despair, let us have hope; where there is darkness, replace it with light; and where there is sadness, replace it with hope. I pray that we can especially offer love to all, forgiveness where needed, and mercy to all in our paths today. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
