THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BELONGS TO THOSE WHO ARE POOR IN SPIRIT

30 Nov

Let us eat with the poor
drink with the poor
share with the poor

that we might deserve
to have a part with the poor
in that place
where they shall be satisfied,
who here,
for Christ’s sake,
hunger and thirst after justice.

For the kingdom of heaven
belongs to those
who are poor in spirit,
and poor in material things
for Christ’s sake,
to whom be glory
for ever and ever.
Amen.

– Prayer of St Columban
