“Remember me when you come into your Kingdom”. These last words of the thief on the cross beside Jesus help to keep us focused as we approach the end of the liturgical year which will end with the feast of Christ the King. The response “Today, you will be with me in paradise”, reminds us that it is never too late to seek help or to change.
In Manresa the leaves are changing colour and falling, (although the song says that leaves don’t fall, they just let go at the right time). Even though the building project is disturbing our normal silent routine, quiet returns at the weekend. So we are able to continue to offer Oasis days and other activities that support the spiritual life.
