Jan van Rijckenborgh

In the biblical Sermon on the Mount the beatitudes occupy a special place. They are generally considered as a future reward for a morally outstanding life. The clarifications of J. van Rijckenborgh make clear that the texts are of quite a different nature, with a very topical value. The nine beatitudes place the human being before the unique path that leads to his true regeneration, a path that can be taken by anyone who is determined to be a free-mason. Thus, this part of the Sermon on the Mount becomes a fiery call from the Brotherhood of Life and a loving hand offered by it.
