Dear Parishioners,

In our Gospel today, St Luke takes up the story as the two disciples returned in the dead of night to Jerusalem from Emmaus. They tell all those gathered in the Upper Room what had happened on the road; how Jesus had walked with them; how their hearts burned within them as he explained the scriptures to them; then they recognised him in ‘the breaking of bread’; he vanished from their sight; he was now to be recognised in his followers, in the scriptures and in the Eucharist, the breaking of bread.

Jesus first words as ever: “Peace be with you”. The disciples were in fear and alarm. He showed them his wounds of suffering then asked if they had anything to eat. Food and sharing of it is always so important to Jesus. He loved weddings, inviting himself to dinner and of course the Last Supper.

PILGRIMAGE TO EUROPE:

The aim of the Pilgrimage organised by our Justice and Peace

Commission was to try to build bridges between ourselves here in the UK and Europe. It was a show of solidarity with all who seek peace, justice and reconciliation. Our first step was to visit Secours Catholique, the organisation that supports the many migrants in Calais. We met Bro. Johannes, who used to be at the Catholic Worker at Mattison Road. Then Brussels and Strasbourg visited the European Union and the Council of Europe (which we remain part of after Brexit). In Strasbourg it was good to make contact with the Kurdish people keeping vigil outside the Council of Europe buildings. Taize (near Lyon) was amazing! There were 3,000 young people joined in prayer, study, workshops and just enjoying each other’s company. Then Assisi to follow in the footsteps of St Francis and St Clare; we prayed for Pope Francis and his leadership; his inspirational Laudato Si document Care of our Common home. A day visit to Rome while we saluted all the main sites, we met with the Community of Saint

Egidio; founded in 1968 after Vatican II and dedicated to works of charity, evangelisation and prayer. There are 50,000 lay members worldwide. (We need to learn more!) Finally a visit: to the United Nations in Geneva to learn a bit more about the UN peacekeeping strategy. Thanks for all your prayers which helped in a magnificent pilgrimage.

PEACE: We hope and pray that the conflict in Syria does not escalate into something even more horrible.

God bless, have a good week.

Fr Joe
