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.

Parishioners young and old of St Edmund Campion Roman Catholic church in Altwood Road, Maidenhead, gathered last Friday for a pot luck supper to celebrate the opening of their newly extended and refurbished Parish Centre. The ribbon was cut by Hannah Foster, aged 6, after which parish priest Fr. 'Pepe' Claveria blessed the centre and gave a short speech outlining how the plan for the centre had come about 2½ years ago, and then came to fruition with the generous help of many people in the parish, starting with a wide consultation as to the scope of the project.

Today, Jesus speaks about three images that are simple and evident for everyone: salt, light and a city. Jesus indicates what a disciple is and what a disciple should be. All three have something in common. Salt doesn't exist for itself, but as a condiment. Light doesn't exist for itself but to shine. The city on the top of a hill is there to be visible and so to give directions. The value of all three is to give something to others. A disciple exists for others, to share their own existence.
