Thursday 13th Aug 2020 ‘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.’ Bless, O Lord, all those who work so tirelessly for the good of the different communities that we live in. Give them strength and compassion for their continuing great works in your name. Amen.
