This is the seventh reflection commemorating the two hundredth anniversary of the Restoration of the Society of Jesus. A reflection on the life of Gerard Manley Hopkins.The monks of the Abbey of Keur Moussa sing: O all you works of the Lord, O bless the Lord, To him be highest glory and praise for ever. Wherever it is I am right now, what works of the Lord can I see? Perhaps the sky, the clouds? Perhaps hills or fields, or a horse or a dog, or a tree? Perhaps it’s just the inside of a bus...

I was born in Liverpool and started at the Jesuit College there at the age of 8. My dominant memory of my 10 and a half years at St Francis Xavier's was of friendly Jesuits, particularly the young Jesuits doing there regency, who took us for hikes and supervised sports. From there, I went to Liverpool University to find one of my teachers there as Chaplain, Fr Vincent Wilkin SJ. At first, the chaplaincy was not my dominant interest but then they put on a play and I was given a minor part...
I am Alan Harrison, a Jesuit Brother, originally from Wolverhampton but of Irish and Welsh lineage. I currently work offering spiritual direction, assisting with courses at the Mount Street Jesuit Centre but also acting as National Chaplain to the Christian Life Community in England and Wales.
