Litany from the Beatitudes

Reader 1: Come, all who are poor in spirit;
come, all who mourn;
come, all who are meek;
come, all who hunger and thirst after righteousness.
Reader 2: Come, all who would be merciful;
come, all who would be pure in heart;
come, all who would be neighbour to those who suffer.
Reader 1: Let us come together.
Reader 2: Let us confess that the source of our life is Christ Jesus,
who taught us to love the Lord our God
with all our heart, soul, strength and mind,
and our neighbour as ourselves.
All: Let us worship the Lord our God,
so that we may learn anew what it means to love our neighbour.
