All the ingredients of Christian life

In the story of the two disciples on the way to Emmaus, all the ingredients of Christian life are found. Running away from where Christ is to be found. We do it all the time. Meeting Jesus in the unexpected places or persons or situations and how many times does this happen and we do not recognise him, or worse mistreat him? Finding the real meaning and identity of Jesus and his mission in having the Scriptures fully explained. Without the Scriptures we cannot claim to know Jesus. Yet hoe many Catholics go through life hardly ever opening a bible? Recognising Jesus in the breaking of break, which is, our celebration of the Eucharist. The breaking and sharing of the bread indicates the essentially community dimension of that celebration, making it a real communion with all present. The central experience of Scripture and Liturgy draws us to participate in the wok of proclaiming the message of Christ and sharing our experience of it with others that they may also share it. The importance of hospitality and kindness to a stranger is also very much present. “I was hungry… and you did/did not feed…” Jesus is especially present and to be found and loved in the very least of my brothers and sisters.

I'm simply a computer geek who has been in that industry for a couple of decades now and loves living in Brixham since moving here a little over ten years ago. I'm helping out with this site and will do all I can to make it successful. I have lots of fun ideas but I'm sure that you do to, so let's have them please... No, seriously let us know what you would like to see and the sorts of thing you want this site to be capable of doing (making coffee excluded, I've been trying to do that for years)
