NOT JUST BREAD

MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD...

INTRODUCTION

SHARING - DISCLOSURE

THIS IS THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT.
SHARING A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THAT ACTUALLY BELONGS TO ALL OF US.

SHARING NOT JUST A PERSONAL STORY, BUT A HISTORICAL REALITY BASED ON SCIENCE AND FAITH.

THROUGH A PERSONAL JOURNEY THAT REFLECTS THAT OF HUMANITY AS A WHOLE.
THAT SENSE OF PERSONAL DISSATISFACTION, OF MALAISE,
THAT EACH OF US SEEKS TO COMBAT IN OUR OWN WAYS.

PREFACE

The content presented does not aim to be a solution to our personal problems, nor is it a form of proselytism. Instead, it offers POINTS FOR REFLECTION. Each of us has our own path made of experiences, history, and reality. It is not possible to introduce new realities or changes within ourselves if we do not first begin to free ourselves from abandoning the old for something new.

 

It is not us who change, who choose to have faith or whatever you want to call it… it is not us. Our personal state does not allow us to do this. We delude ourselves into thinking that we choose, they delude us into thinking that we do this, but reality is very different from the truth. We can and must create the conditions necessary to accept a different reality. Everything is distinguished by the fruits it bears.

SUGGESTIONS

Set aside prejudices, culture, upbringing, and try to read allowing yourself to be guided by your inner self.

Sometimes just a few lines are enough to begin a new personal reality.

Courage is needed to accept the truth!

And thanks to the experience and closeness to the Madonna Dell’Unione Monastery, we allow ourselves to share a series of contents based on a non-personal but historical reality, composed of values and rules that today seem utopian.

But if approached with a mindset “free” from preconceptions, they allow the beginning of a journey of knowledge and self-discovery.

FATHER BERNARDO

The author of these contents is Father Bernardo.

A man, a monk who has dedicated his life to the truth. To its discovery, its study, to living daily through the small things a reality based mainly on the charity and love of the person and of who we really are.     During his monastic profession, Father Bernardo brings together and establishes a relationship among three worlds:

 

FAITH – SCIENCE – PSYCHOLOGY

THE MONASTERY

The “Word” understood as a CHRISTIAN teaching has among its main purposes that of creating a true “user manual” for everyday life, with the ultimate goal of preparing us for a very important event, from which none of us is exempt: Death. Father Bernardo, in all his writings, creates a link between THEOLOGY, WORD, and contemporary life with today’s world, showing the RELATIONSHIP between science and faith, wisdom, and intelligence.

THE PROJECT

SHARING

Today we are anything but united, and we hardly ever live the word “sharing”. Personal property has extended to our EGO. My thought is mine, it’s me, and sharing means giving but also receiving. And receiving something that doesn’t satisfy our EGO offends us!

No proselytism or claiming to have absolute truths. It’s a personal choice and it should remain so. This is why we use the word SHARING, so that everyone can choose whether to accept a different message or not.

HISTORY

Human memory is tied to history; this ability to remember serves us to grow, to change. Unlike all other forms of life, humans have this prerogative, this necessity! To change! To evolve! So why do we choose to believe only a part of history, of our past, of our origins? Perhaps out of convenience? Why has “modern” culture become so detached from what our history is?

CHANGE

Who am I to change something? We cannot think that none of us can do anything! That we have no responsibilities! Every person, no matter their social background, has the power of choice over themselves and consequently reflects themselves to others. CHANGE presupposes a different life choice from the one we are living. To change, we need a new cultural formation; we must WAKE UP and REACT starting from ourselves. Changing ourselves, not others.

THE NEW EXODUS

Since humans appeared on Earth, they have been moving. The exodus we are preparing to face, mostly unconsciously, is internal. The more or less total failure of all cultures, philosophies, religions requires an EXIT from a series of concepts and inadequate formation for humans. All human life on Earth has been a continuous crisis that has always been faced with the same tools. The arrogance and presumption of doing it ourselves… we see the fruits in everyday life.

LIBRARY

It is thanks to Father Bernardo that we give life to this “Library,” which contains a series of publications based on undeniable historicity, bringing to today a message of change and highlighting with new interpretations the relationship

between man and GOD.

 


 

The contents presented have been categorized into “contemporary” themes with a suggestion on the path to follow and readings.

WHO WE ARE, OUR ORIGINS, THE FATHER.

ORIGINS

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MAN AND THE SON.

MAN TODAY

GENESIS, HUMAN PROJECT.

ANTHROPOLOGY

WISDOM AND SPIRITUALITY.

SCIENCE AND FAITH

MARIA VALTORTA

The writings of Maria Valtorta are an extensive exploration of the gospel and the relationship between MAN and GOD. A work that we consider essential for personal growth and transformation. That’s why we choose to share part of her writings and include suggestions for readings and for deepening current topics and themes.

THE "INSPIRED" WORKS

They are – as is obvious – those of which Maria Valtorta has always claimed the supernatural origin, they are divided into visions and dictations. In the section concerning visions, Maria Valtorta herself, with her own writing abilities, chooses words and terms to describe what she saw. In the section concerning dictations, however, Maria Valtorta asserts that she always transcribed faithfully and accurately what she heard during her mystical experience.

THE NEW EXODUS

"Exodus" means "exit"

TODAY MORE THAN EVER WE NEED TO COME OUT OF A THOUGHT, FORMATION, CULTURE, IDEALS… THAT HAVE NOT BROUGHT FRUIT OR RATHER HAVE GENERATED FRUITS THAT ARE NOT GOOD FOR HUMANITY… 

THE GOSPEL IS THE TESTIMONY OF THE LIFE OF JESUS, OF HIS EXISTENCE AND HUMANITY.

CATECHESIS

THE GOSPEL CAN BE COMPARED TO THE BIOGRAPHY OF THE AUTHOR “GOD”

 

IT PRESENTS THROUGH THE SON BECOMING MAN WHO WE ARE AND HOW TO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE.

Knowing the daily life of Jesus and his friends is one of the first steps to understanding the RELATIONSHIP between MAN and GOD.

Catechism has always been a fundamental subject of study in human formation.

Today we have lost this!

Suitable for everyone from children, adolescents, young people, adults…

 

it is the basis of every professional and personal formation.

 

Capable of enveloping everything in something higher.

We give life to this small and simple CATECHESIS project to present the life of Jesus and his teachings.
