2015 June: Sydney: Churches

There are a lot of churches in the city. It's not only the catholic churches that have intricate designs, there were Anglican and others as well.  On the Pitts, you can also see the Scientology Church (Read).

Gospel MK 14:12-16, 22-26 - June 07, 2015
While they were eating, he took bread, said the blessing,
broke it, gave it to them, and said, "Take it; this is my body."

Reflection on the Gospel:
That we can't be alone (no man is an island) and we need companion.
Companion - you need to have a companion to share your bread (pan) with.

Origin: Middle English: from Old French compaignon, literally 'one who breaks bread with another', based on Latin com- 'together with' + panis 'bread'. [Reference

Our Supper Invitation
Take up your burden now, walk 'til you find. 
Just what the journey means; walk while there's time.
