Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5. 3
Almighty God, in our baptism you adopted us for your own. Quicken, we pray, your Spirit within us, that we, being renewed both in body and mind, may worship you in sincerity and truth; through Jesus Christ our lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Blest are the pure in heart, for they shall see our God; the secret of the Lord is theirs, their soul is Christ’s abode. Lord, we thy presence seek; may ours this blessing be; Give us a pure and lowly heart, A temple meet for thee. (Rev. John Keble)

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of those who bring good tidings, who publish salvation. Isaiah 52. 7.

Amen.
