      About The Book

      “As Alasdair MacIntyre notes in the preface, the work of Pinckaers attracted strong

      and fully justified notice in this country with the publication in English of his The

      Sources of Christian Ethics. As Pinckaers himself notes in the text, excellently translated

      by Michael Sherwin, the interest should in no way be limited to Roman

      Catholics. Morality recasts the earlier book in an argument that is both lower and

      upper case ‘catholic,’ and is accessible to readers and teachers outside the limited

      circle of moral theologians and academic ethicists. Pinckaers contends that

      Christian morality is not first of all about obligations but about happiness, understanding

      that the happiness of union with God is our natural destiny made possible

      by grace. The Sermon on the Mount is at the center of an approach to morality

      that turns on the distinction between ‘freedom for excellence’ and ‘freedom of

      indifference,’ the former understood as human flourishing and the latter as a ‘neutral’

      capacity to choose between controversies. The proposal of Morality is thoroughly

      Christ-centered, humanistic, and faithful to the magisterial teaching of the

      Church. Warmly recommended.”

      First Things

      “If you want to have the experience of reflecting on Catholic morality as though

      you were reading about it for the first time, treat yourself to Father Servais

      Pinckaers’ Morality: The Catholic View. He has recovered the classical view of the

      moral life as the quest for happiness and has presented it with disarming simplicity.

      Bringing us back to the Sermon on the Mount and Romans 12 — 15, the writings

      of Augustine and Aquinas, and the theme of natural law, he has freed those texts

      from the layers of legalism which has hidden their liberating, spiritual powers for

      moral living. By distinguishing freedom of indifference from freedom for excellence,

      he has restored a wise vision of freedom. No one has shown better the role

      of virtues as building blocks for morality. Catechists need to read this book.”

      Rev. Alfred McBride, O.Praem., Professor of Homilectics and Catechetics at Blessed

      Pope John XXIII Seminary, Weston, Massachusetts

      “Father Pinckaers has given us a masterful exposition of Christian living. The clarity

      and brevity of his presentation — captured well by the translator — make this book

      ideal for classroom and parish use.

      “Readers will find the historical and systematic observations very informative.”

      Romanus Cessario, St. John’s Seminary, Brighton, Massachusetts
