Matthew 5:1-10

September 19, 2013

And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: “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 shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for 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 sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:1-10)
      Jesus, you came in humility at Bethlehem;
      please help me: to be poor in spirit,
            that I may enter the kingdom of heaven;
      to mourn,
            that I may receive the Comforter;
      to be meek,
            that I may enter into my inheritance;
      to hunger and thirst for righteousness,
            that I may be filled;
      to be merciful
            that I may obtain mercy;
      to come to purity of heart,
            that I may see you;
      to be a peacemaker,
            that I may be called your child;
      to be willing to be persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
            that the kingdom of heaven will be mine.
      Thank you.

8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
