more beatitudinal synchronicity

I was literally flipping through a book of writings of our groovy founders looking for something and this bit from Mother Evangelista Gaffney jumped out at me...

Here then is Jesus' will - that I be poor in spirit, be meek, that I mourn when God is offended, that I hunger and thirst after justice, that I be merciful, that I be pure of heart, that I be a peace-maker and that I may suffer persecution for justice sake. Take these beatitudes, two and two, and I have the whole retreat in a nut shell.
-Mother Evangelista, Retreat Notes 1897
