Father José Clavería (Pepe) writes:
I was born in San Sebastián in Spain in 1962, the 10th of 12 siblings. At the age of 14 I moved with my family to Madrid, where I went on to study economics and law at University. It was while at university that I joined the catholic movement Communion and Liberation. I began training for the priesthood in 1985 and was ordained in 1992. Read more.

"I have no more to say but to recommend your case and mine to Almighty God, the Searcher of Hearts, who sends us His grace, and sets us at accord before the day of payment, to the end we may at last be friends in heaven, when all injuries shall be forgotten." Read more.
A parable is a short symbolic (but not literal) story designed to teach some principle or lesson. It is a teaching method that involves a comparison. The parable uses situations, events and circumstances known to those being taught, like a bridge, to teach them a principle or convey a new meaning. In Jesus' case, he used it to convey, in the case of the rich person and Lazarus, as a correction. By their very nature they are NOT to be taken literally in every detail.
I’m happy to be with you today for this Pastoral Visitation, and I thank Fr. Pepe and all of you for your warm welcome. I thank you for all you do here in Maidenhead to witness to the Catholic Faith. It’s 3 ½ years since I became the bishop. Originally I come from Altrincham, Cheshire (up-north). This is not a part of the world I know (the deep south)! Our Diocese of Portsmouth is big, from here to the Channel Islands, but as I get to know all the clergy and people, I feel very much at home.
