By Msgr. Alex Rebello
Over a time frame of fourteen months Monsignor Alex Rebello, wrote these forty auto-biographical vignettes when in the rural and sparsely populated diocese of Wrexham, in the silence and solitude of North Wales.
Monsignor Alex Rebello demonstrates in these meditations that the ordinary events, objects, familiar places, personal encounters, times and seasons of our lives can be rich inspiration for our prayer, taking us to God.
“These are but simple stray streams of random reflections, a motley mix one might say, of a rural pastor with a little flock, and are open to anyone of any faith or of no faith and remain open-ended” say’s Msgr. Alex Rebello.
He shows too how in those daily occurrences there is opportunity to refine our thoughts about the human race and to acknowledge and stand up for the rights and dignity of all, but especially of the most vulnerable.
According to Bishop Peter M. Brignall of the diocese of Wrexham, “This Springs in the Desert volume is an object lesson to us all of how in the busyness of our lives there is the stimulus and opportunity to reflect on the people, places and things that we encounter daily and to raise them to God”
