1 Vision of Church Pope Francis

2 Francis, come and protect my home


4 Church as Reconciler Restoring what has been broken Reuniting what has been divided The Church must be like ‘ a field hospital after battle’ healing the wounds of its faithful going out to find the hurt & those excluded or fallen away.


6 ... show mercy, not condemnation The key is for the Church to welcome, not exclude

7 The Church as Home This Church with which we should be thinking is the home of all the home of all, not a small chapel that can hold only a small group of selected people.

8 Home Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in. I should have called it something you somehow haven’t to deserve. Robert Frost

9 HOME What does HOME mean for you?


11 Church of the Heart Only the beauty of God can attract God’s way is through enticement, allure.


13 A Church With A Simple Message Presenting Jesus as the compassion of God

14 The Church of Emmaus Capable of meeting people on their way Entering into their conversation Able to dialogue with the disillusioned

15 Are we still the Church of Emmaus capable of: Warming hearts? Leading people back to Jerusalem? Bringing them home?

16 Jerusalem Jerusalem is where our roots are Scripture Catechesis Sacraments Community Friendship with the Lord... Mary... the Apostles

17 LET US PRAY TOGETHER God of life and promise, protect us, your pilgrim people. As we journey towards our home in heaven, bless us with a sense of adventure and a sense of security. As we seek to be home-makers here on earth, with our loved ones and in our parish and regional community, may we create for each other an experience of Christian welcome that puts us in touch with you and gives us a foretaste of what home will be like forever. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life now and forever. AMEN
