Mt of Beatitudes July 6, 2011

The Gospel of Matthew tells us that Jesus gave the Sermon on the “Mount” while Luke tells us he gave it on a plain, and so there’s a site called the Mount of Beatitudes.

I vividly remember the Church of the Beatitudes and a monk singing hymns while we enjoyed this stop on the tour. The place, his singing, the acoustics in that little church and my imagination came together in a powerful way. Unforgettable…
