The Good Sense of Jesus: A Commentary on the Beatitudes

Fr. Iván Pertiné
TAN Books, 272 pages

Written as a retreat for men seeking consecration in the St. John Society, these meditations nevertheless apply to any layman who wishes to follow Christ more closely. The Beatitudes “reveal the character of Christ himself,” Fr. Pertiné writes, and “there can be no holiness in Christ without suffering, without the Cross.” As difficult as living the Gospel message may sometimes appear to us, it is far more difficult to live without God and to be subject to the whims of our passions and temptations that can lead us astray, diverting us from our eternal home. Spiritual exercises that end each chapter make this volume suitable for a self-guided retreat.
