The experience of loneliness is as universal as hunger or thirst. Because it affects us more intimately we are less inclined to speak of it. But who has not known its gnawing ache? The fear of loneliness causes anguish. It prompts reckless deeds. To this every age has borne witness. No voice is more insidious than the one that whispers in our ear: 'You are irredeemably alone no light will pierce your darkness.' The fundamental statement of Christianity is to convict that voice of lying. The Christian condition unfolds within the certainty that ultimate reality the source of all that is is a personal reality of communion no metaphysical abstraction. Men and women made 'in the image and likeness' of God bear the mark of that original communion stamped on their being. When our souls and bodies cry out for Another it is not a sign of sickness but of health. A labour of potential joy is announced. We are reminded of what we have it in us to become. That our labour may be fruitful Scripture repeatedly exhorts us to 'remember'. The remembrance enjoined is partly introspective and existential partly historical for the God who took flesh to redeem our loneliness leaves traces in history. This book examines six facets of Christian remembrance complementing biblical exegesis with readings from literature ancient and modern. It aims to be an essay in theology. At the same time it proposes a grounded reflection on what it means to be a human being.
