Our book for May is Remember to Live – Embracing the Second Half of Life by Fr. Thomas Ryan, CSP.
Awareness and acceptance of our mortality as experienced in aging, illness, and the death of others can bring a clarity and richness to the limited, precious moments of life, and helps us foster a special care for relationships and priorities in the time we are given.
Called by the leadership of his community to open and develop the work of a Paulist North American Office for Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations, Fr. Ryan, CSP, moved to New York City in 2000 and worked for seven years establishing the work of the office prior to moving it to the new North American Paulist Center in Washington, DC, in 2007, where he continues to serve the Paulists and the church in that ministry today.
