TO BE SAVED

The disciple asked, “Master, what does it mean to be saved?”

And the master answered, “A piece of bread on the plate in front of a starving person is salvation.”

CONSIDER THIS

“Salvation is not something that happens only at the end of a person’s life. Salvation happens every time someone with a key uses it to open a door he could lock instead.”  – Barbara Brown Taylor, Leaving Church (HarperOne, 2012) Page 115

I'm a Jesuit from Malta, an artist at heart and madly in love with all things beautiful and soulful: music, painting, sculpture, photography, film, theatre, poetry, good company, good food, good wine and more. I believe that beauty is a wonderful entry into the mystery of the God “whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” God can be sensed in all things if and when we engage in a long, loving look at the real that surrounds us. I consider myself a seeker with bottomless curiosity, an eternal student of life, exploring fresh and creative ways to proclaim the Good News in the hope of helping fellow pilgrims and seekers to embrace real and radical changes that will lead to conversion and transformation.

  1. Fr. Philip, I told John Fitzgerald I don’t have any materials from our last retreat. I do get recharged by watching “The Wonderful Imperfect in all of us”. I got along on my second grade education for 78 years, but you washed that out at our last retreat.Thank you. Art Tonkinson is helping us look for the older materials. Pax et bonus.
