Palabras claves

Aquest llibre està escrit amb un esperit i una finalitat pastoral. Mossèn Rovira observa que actualment es dóna la tendència a rebre el missatge cristià com un relat interessant, que versa sobre la veritat però que no és la veritat mateixa, que no és una veritat que tingui la força d’arrossegar tot l’enteniment, tota la capacitat de conèixer i d’estimar, i que pugui comprometre tot l’ésser humà. Les paraules d’aquest llibre van encaminades a retornar humilment la versemblança original d’aquest relat.

L’autor ens convida a seguir-lo en les seves reflexions profundes, filades a través de passatges de la Biblia. A mesura que avancem en la lectura, anem descobrint quina és aquesta capacitat que té el relat cristià de captivar-nos amb una contundència i generositat tan absolutes. I això és la fe: creure que Déu és i es comunica, que acaba de trucar a la porta del nostre cor i espera que l’hi obrim. La vida cristiana va prenent la forma d’un encontre secret amb un Déu que vol entrar fins al més íntim de nosaltres per fer que la nostra vida esdevingui un banquet amagat on es trobin el més íntim de Déu amb el més íntim de nosaltres. Aquest és el sopar de Crist on ell és el cap de taula, el servidor i l’amor esclatant i constant, que és l’aliment del banquet.


The hidden feast

The present book is written in both a pastoral spirit and purpose. Priest Rovira explains that he observes a current tendency in our society in which the Christian message is received as an interesting narrative that is related to truth but is no longer perceived as the truth.
At least it doesn’t function any longer as a truth that executes such a strength, that it’s able to influence and take over our whole comprehension, our capacity to get to know and to love, that is able to truly engage the human being.
This book wants to modestly bring back parts of the probability of this original narrative.
The author invites us to follow his arguments following him through passages of the bible. The further we read, the more we discover the huge capacities of the Christian narrative to engage us, and to convince us of his absolute generosity.

As we read, we re-discover what faith really means: to believe in the existence of God and to understand that he constantly communicates with us. That he knocks at the door of our hearts waiting for us to open up and let him in.
The Christian life turns out to be a secret encounter with God. This is the last Supper: a hidden feast with the most intimate aspects of God,
A supper with Christ, in which he sits at the head of the table, being our servant. And his constant love is the meal of this banquet.
