Product Description

  • The Cross and the Beatitudes: Lessons on Love and Forgiveness
  • From the renowned Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
  • A profound, inspiring read
  • Perfect for quiet, prayerful reflection

Details

This classic work from the pen of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen brings together Christ's Sermon on the Mount with his Seven Last Words. From the Mount of the Beatitudes to the Hill of Calvary, Our Lord's public ministry and statements centered on the themes of love and forgiveness, which are explored here with Archbishop Sheen's characteristic insight and passion.

Although there is no strict connection between the Seven Beatitudes and the Seven Last Words, The Cross and the Beatitudes shows how the first and last statements of Jesus' public life are intimately related. His entire ministry, with its ultimate fulfillment on Calvary's Cross, perfectly displayed the meekness, mercy, and poverty of His early teaching.

From "Blessed are the meek" and "Father, forgive them" to "Into Thy hands I commend my spirit," The Cross and the Beatitudes pleads for a return to the foundational teachings of Jesus that alone can sustain our spirits and lead us to a Christian way of life.
