EUR - Sunday 28th November 2004

29/11/2004: General House

When I was a boy, I was impatient with the passage of time. The years moved all too slowly and I was eager to get on with life. Now that I am older I find that just the opposite is true. Time passes all too quickly; years come to an end, leaving me wondering where the weeks and months have gone.
Life is a precious gift, and I’ve been graced with 57 years of it thus far. Rich years, turbulent years, each of them memorable.
I am grateful, though, to be here today to celebrate and I am grateful to all of you who put this celebration together. I’m also thankful for all that you contribute to this dream that Marcellin set in motion almost two centuries ago: to bring God’s Good News to poor children and young people. <96a.jpg alt=Brother Seán hspace=5 vspace=5 align=right>
I count my family among my blessings and I also place you there, among life’s many blessings. Looking back on almost six decades of life I could not imagine living them in any other way than as one of Marcellin’s brothers. So, most especially I am grateful for your brotherhood.
Thank you.
Brother Seán
