These homilies began a long time ago, at Fané-les-Roses, a Mission Station hidden in the highlands of Papua. In this magnificent location, the thought came to address, in the course of the Three Year Cycle, all the major themes of our Christian faith.
After many years and the impact of Kashmir Shaivism, these reflections have at last reached final form. They are presented for your considered reflection, perhaps even your prayer. May they lead us deeper into the mystery so wonderfully evident in those steep mountains and valleys, untouched and untroubled.
