Spiritual Food 1602

Dear friends,

For this month I offer you that which I prepared in my article:

The Woman Clothed With The Sun In Search Of The Little Ones

An Experience of Life

When I meet people in search of faith or those touched by a death or are in irregular marriage situations, I invitation them to the Meeting on the Gospel, stating that there is no intention to lead them to a regular religious practice.

There are now about 200 people who meet in small groups to read the Gospel: over half of them do not participate in other religious practices, and about a third live in non regular family situations. They find a special atmosphere of joy that reassures them at first, then they become more involved.

I remember Anthony, a very righteous man but not a believer. He cohabitates with Silvia, a divorced women, who recently approached the faith. There was commented on that day the Gospel of the sick woman touching Jesus' cloak and was healed. Antonio said, "I do not know if Jesus is God. But coming here, I seem to touch his cloak, because I am always cured of my sadness. Moreover, here I can not feel the difference between those who go to church and those who do not go. You receive everyone here."
