..inevitability-part two..

We are struck by the awareness of time past, of the time that has passed, of time that passes. I say of time that has passed because this is also a summery of how we have behaved, of how we have used this time, aware of time past, and therefore aware of time that passes..

The awareness of time enlightens us, makes us shrewder time that passes can activate us in a more intelligent way. (fr. Giussani)

The awareness of time past can help us remain attentive to the Christian Experience here and now, To be ready.

What does this require of us? Fr. Giussani provokes this question, “What do everything that has happened and everything that happens have to do with us?”

Time does not belong to us.
