SURPRISED BY THE UNEXPECTED

Phil and Brian had been the closest of friends since childhood. They played on the same ball teams. They married sisters in fact. They built homes in the same neighbourhood. Then Phil died suddenly. Brian was devastated.

One evening watching a beautiful sunset Brian was sure he felt the presence of Phil nearby.

“Is that you, Phil?” he asked.

“Yes, Brian, came the reply.”

“What’s it like where you are?”

“Well it’s kind of nice. I get up in the morning and I have some breakfast and I maybe go down for a swim in the lake. And when I encounter one of those lovely ladies I enjoy a romantic interlude. Soon it’s time for lunch and a nap.”

“Wow,” said Brian, “I had no idea heaven was like that.”

“Who says I’m in heaven?” replied Phil. “I’m a bull in Catalunya Spain.

I'm a Jesuit from Malta, an artist at heart and madly in love with all things beautiful and soulful: music, painting, sculpture, photography, film, theatre, poetry, good company, good food, good wine and more. I believe that beauty is a wonderful entry into the mystery of the God “whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” God can be sensed in all things if and when we engage in a long, loving look at the real that surrounds us. I consider myself a seeker with bottomless curiosity, an eternal student of life, exploring fresh and creative ways to proclaim the Good News in the hope of helping fellow pilgrims and seekers to embrace real and radical changes that will lead to conversion and transformation.
