Jesus Christ gave the most beautiful and powerful talk the world has ever heard: the Sermon on the Mount. These words have shaped history and turned many people’s lives inside out.
Right at the beginning are eight short sayings which all begin with the word ‘Blessed’.
These sayings are a portrait of Jesus, the Son of God. They answer the deepest question of our age: what does it mean to be human?
For some they will be a very simple introduction to Jesus. For others they will be a way of going deeper. Some will read them in Lent, but they can be used at any time of year. Some will use them to prepare for baptism and confirmation. Others to go deeper in the Way of Christ.
However you take this Pilgrim Journey through Lent and Easter, make space. Allow God’s word to dwell in you richly as we seek together as a Church to know Jesus better and to become more Christ-like in everything we are and in everything we do.
