The book roots in the Gospel passage of the disciples of Emmaus. Its purpose is to discover the human aspect in every experience of faith or unbelief. That’s why the work is divided into two parts. In the first one five issues areaddressed: authenticity, friendship, restlessness, sense, and nostalgia. They lead the readers to immerse themselves in their humanity and to rediscover what most people would consider a disease: being human with all the frailties it entails. The second part offers a theological reflection based on four images: inn / church; table / sharing; breaking the bread / faith; getting back / announcement. Finally, in the appendix we can find a new reading of St. Paul’s life, as the man who more than anyone else has summarized all aspects previous chapters treated. A new look on our own humanity, echoing the words of Jesus: «Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.» (Matthew 9:12). Only if we admit our own humanity, Christ can heal us, that is He can reconciliate ourselves with our own humanity. But there can be no healing for those who do not consider themselves sick, because they are too busy to convince other people and themselves they are perfect or, as the Gospel says, righteous (Matthew 9:13). A text written in a narrative way, and therefore accessible to every reader.
Only if we admit our own humanity, Christ can heal us,
that is He can reconciliate ourselves with our own humanity.
