Sermon On The Mount

In this book, Father William Wasson presents the Sermon on the Mount and describes its meaning to him and to other leaders through the ages.

Father Wassons philosophy clearly springs from the Sermon on the Mount, and he describes how Jesus words have influenced not only Christians like St. Francis of Assisi and, in our time, Martin Luther King, but also a non-Christian such as Mohandas Gandhi. There are two reasons why the words of Jesus might be accepted as profound truths. One reason would be that they are believed to be Gods truths which should therefore by obeyed if one wants to enter the kingdom of heaven. A second reason would be ones acceptance and conviction that they describe what it means to be fully human, to live a life infused with love and wisdom.
