The Eighth Day of Christmas

Eight Maids A-Milking

The eight maids remind us of the eight Beatitudes: Blessed are the poor in spirit, those who mourn, the meek, those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers, and those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake. (Matthew 5:3-10)
