Litany of Blessing: Be-Attitude
(inspired by Matthew 5:1-10)

Blessed are you who make room at your table
for in that way even tax-collectors shall be redeemed

Blessed are you who seek out lost sheep
for your seeking you find more than a lamb

Blessed are you who touch the leper
for you make a home for the excluded

Blessed are you who welcome the prodigal
for you express the fullness of the love that is God

Blessed are the silenced
for you hear the cry of God

Blessed are you who make friends with your enemy
for you know the way to lasting peace

Blessed are you who turn the other cheek
for you show more strength than the oppressor

Blessed are you who break bread with the stranger
you will have a foretaste of the kingdom

Blessed are you who heal on the Sabbath
you will reveal what is important to God

Blessed are you who seek company with the outcast and unclean
for you shall be accompanying Jesus

Blessed are you who overturn the tables
you are the freedom fighters of love 

Blessed are you who love your neighbour
for you already live in the realm of God

Blessed are you who walk the way
for you shall move within the company of heaven

Blessed are you who carry a cross
for you shall see God’s wisdom

Blessed are you who wait for the morning
for you shall see the renewal of life
