Rigney reminds us that the beatitudes are in the present tense. "You are blessed now, today and always, just like the women on these pages." Rigney also offers reflection questions and concrete ways to put the beatitudes into practice in our own lives. "Blessed are You" offers the opportunity to learn about some female saints and blesseds you may not have had the pleasure of encountering before, while giving you a roadmap of how to live a more Christ-like life.
