The Sermon on the Mount: Suffer Well

The blessed life, according to Jesus, is experienced as we grow in responding graciously to the struggles of this mysterious life.

How do these contrasting beatitudes work together?

That is the wisdom Jesus wants his disciples to ponder and practice. He will explain each of these individually and will summarize how they play out in a complicated and challenging world. That is what the Sermon on the Mount is all about.

Man of Sorrows by Luis de Morales

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,

for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Mt. 6:34
