True Essence

Per Archbishop Sheen, in his Life of Christ, chapter 11:

“The unthinking often say the Sermon on the Mount constitutes the ‘essence of Christianity.’ ” 

And his genius lies in spelling out the proper rebuke for such unthinking thoughts, which, if I may be so bold as to attempt to condense and paraphrase:

The true essence of Christianity lies not in the Sermon on the Mount but the Sermon on Golgotha.
