"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.
