More beatitudes

Blessed are you who are in prison,
      for God preserves your dignity.

Blessed are you who are depressed,
      for the Beloved holds you.

Blessed are you who are powerless
      for love is a true power.

Blessed are you who weep for justice
      for God will establish it.

Blessed are you who love in the face of hate,
      for you are vessels of God.

Blessed are you who look for God in unlikely places,
      for you will see God.

Blessed are you who are a healing presence,
      for you shall be healed.

Blessed are you when people try to silence you;
      you are in the company of saints and prophets.

Blessed are you no matter what,
      for grace will never be denied you—never.
