An integrated life

 
Monday of the tenth week of the year, based on Matthew 5:1-10

  When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:

  “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

  “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

  “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

  “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

  “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.

  “Blessed are the pure in 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 righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
