Third Antiphon

The Third Antiphon is something I am sure you will all recognize. It is one of my favorite parts of the Liturgy.

Remember us, O Lord, when you come into Your kingdom.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst after justice, for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they who suffer persecution for justice sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they shall revile you and persecute you, speaking all that is evil against you, untruly for My sake.

Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit(+), now and always, and forever and ever. Amen.

After the Third Antiphon, the people sing an appropriate hymn for the liturgical cycle. I will make tomorrows hymm my entry for tomorrow.
