Christ is the one and only Shepherd

The procession of Christ into the Old Jerusalem is really a symbolic entrance into the heavenly Jerusalem. For thousands of years, the gates of heaven were closed to the human race after the fall of Adam. Only a New Adam could open what was closed. Christ is the one and only Saviour of the human race. God has destined us for acquiring salvation through our Lord, Jesus Christ there is no other name given to men under heaven than that of Jesus by which we are to be saved I am the Way, He stated, and no one, no one comes to the Father but through Me. Christ is the one and only Shepherd that can lead the flock to the verdant pastures. He is the one and only General Who can lead the troops through the Arch of Triumph. He is the one and only Physician Who can heal fallen man. But the doors, the gates of heaven would only be opened by the key of His Cross. Only by striking against those doors with the Holy Wood of the Cross could they be thrown open. As we enter into the most Holy Week in the Church’s calendar, let us who honour our King and Lord today, not reject Him on Good Friday. Let us as members of the New Israel, the People of God which is the Catholic Church, not reject Him as did the People of God in the Old Testament by enlarge He came unto His own and His own received Him not. May we who vowed at Baptism to reject Satan and Sin and to embrace Christ and His Holy Cross, live out this commitment until we pass through those same heavenly gates.

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)
