Time Out says

This small Catholic church overlooking the Sea of Galilee commemorates the beloved and groundbreaking Sermon on the Mount.

It is here that Jesus is said to have uttered such phrases as “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth” and “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they are the children of God.” Known as the eight Beatitudes, they uplift those in society who are the most downtrodden, and are enough to inspire believers and social activists alike. With eight sides meant to represent the eight phrases, the church itself is small, simple and lovely and does not attempt to compete with the breathtaking natural beauty of the spot.
