As the tertians leaving one by one…going back to their respective provinces after 8 months of consoling formation in Cardoner House Jesuit Tertianship in Dublin, Ireland, the song Times of Your Life kept ringing in my head. This is a popular song and advertisement jingles made famous in 1970’s by a Canadian singer, Paul Anka.
Kodak made a wonderful and nostalgic commercial in 1975 using this said song and it became one of the most memorable TV commercials of all time. You can watch the video by clicking HERE.
The lyrics of the song is so meaning and it reminds me somehow of the Examen on why we need to pause, reflect and pray.
Good morning, yesterday
You wake up and time has slipped away
And suddenly it’s hard to find
The memories you left behind
Remember, do you remember?
Gather moments while you may
Collect the dreams you dream today
Remember, will you remember
The times of your life?
Though it’s kinda sad to see your brother Jesuit whom you spent together in tertianship leave Dublin one by one but the memories we made, the friendship we forge and the shared consolation, passion and vision will make us one for the Mission…all for the greater glory of God.
As the webmaster for this batch, thank you for reading our simple blog and for your prayers. Thanks too for journeying with us.
I made a simple and rough video just to help us remember this one great hella experience in our Jesuit life.
