Sister Margaret Hoffman painted a series of nine watercolors featuring the Beatitudes (declarations made in the Sermon on the Mount) alongside quotations from Sister Dorothy Stang. After living in Brazil for 40 years advocating land reform and rainforest protection, Sister Dorothy was assassinated in 2005 as she prayed the Beatitudes for her killers.
