*Responsive Intent
Blessed are those who are poor in spirit:
the kin-dom of heaven is theirs.
Blessed are those who are mourning:
they will be comforted.
Blessed are those who are gentle:
they will inherit the land.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice:
they will have their fill.
Blessed are those who show mercy to others:
they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are those whose hearts are clean:
they will see God.
Blessed are those who work for peace:
they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of their struggle for justice:
the kin-dom of heaven is theirs.
You are fortunate when others insult you and persecute you, and utter every kind of slander against you because of me.
Be glad and rejoice, for your reward in heaven is great; they persecuted the prophets before you in the very same way.

Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer
Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kindom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kindom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
