Salt and Light
The Commandments, the Beatitudes, and a Joyful Life
Mark P. Shea

"Look at these twin pillars of the Catholic moral life—the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes—as the means of training our eyes to look for the kingdom of heaven.
—From the Introduction

Salt and Light offers a fresh perspective on the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes, showing how these two pillars of Christian moral teaching complement each other. The Ten Commandments are the "ground floor," providing the contours of the moral life. The Beatitudes, by contrast, show us how to live as creatures meant to share in the life of God. Beyond merely a list of dos and don'ts, Mark Shea introduces the modern reader to a fuller grasp of Catholic moral teaching as part of the process of being transformed by the Holy Spirit and living joyfully in virtue. An excellent companion volume to The Work of Mercy, this book is a rich exploration of the Church's moral and social teaching.
