Blessed are the poor in spirit

"Sermon on the Mount," Cosimo Roselli, 1481 AD

An atheist photographing homeless drug addicts in the Bronx made a discovery which greatly startled him.   The photographer assumed that the endless suffering of the addicts' lives would have convinced them that there is no God.  He found instead they possessed unconquerable religious belief.

The photographer asked one addict how she wanted to be described.  She replied "As who I am. A prostitute, a mother of six, and a child of God."
