Long Description:
This quote from the Sacred Scriptures is located at Calvary Cemetery in Erie, Pennsylvania. The quote is etched onto a large stone in the shape of a book. There are four of these stone books in the cemetery with various quotes from the Gospels. This one has a quote from the Gospel of Saint Matthew, chapter 5, verses 3-10. It says:

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are the meek, for they shall possess the earth. Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice, for they shall be satisfied. 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 children of God. Blessed are they who suffer persecution for justice sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

These words of Jesus Christ are commonly called the "Beatitudes," and are the beginning part of Christ's "Sermon on the Mount."
