Blessed are those whose hearts have been broken by their humanity; for they mourn.
Blessed are those who yearn for a better world; for they hunger and thirst for righteousness.
Blessed are those who know no one can take the love of beauty away; for they are meek.
Blessed are those who are blind to anything but the best in others; for they are pure in heart.
Blessed are those who wholeheartedly accept a generous, undeserved gift; for they will be merciful.
Blessed are those who nurture an atmosphere where all can grow; for they are peacemakers.
Blessed are those who tell the truth about their need for grace; for they will be persecuted not for their own righteousness, but for Christ's."
