"Find out where your special moments go. This little book is a gem! It's a collection of father and son memories from the Red Sox circa 1970 and Fenway Park, but it's so much more. If you've never heard about the very real mystery of 'sacred' time you owe it to yourself to find out. There is much un-credible speculation written about heaven out there. Rob Guinan, the author, instead draws from what is already known and is hardly ever shared. This book will have you thinking about loved ones you lost as well as beautiful reunions." -- Catholic Kindle (Facebook)
Remember Carl Yastrzemski, Tony Conigliaro, and Jose Santiago? Remember Fenway's celebrated players' entrance where everyone congregated? What about the Twins' awesome souvenir shop? Remember Signor Pizza and the Sizzleboard and other great after-the-game stops on Commonwealth Avenue? And most importantly, remember that nice guy that sat next to you at the game? THIS Red Sox story is a Fenway father and son story. It began in 1968, and though the season eventually ended, this story doesn't expect to 'EVER' end.
Some moments really are forever!
In theory a baseball game can go on forever. Balls have been known to fly over the outfield wall never to be seen again. Legend has it that one of the longest home runs ever hit sailed over the left field wall at Fenway, and set down onto a truck traveling west on the Mass Pike, only to "land" thousands of miles away where the driver completed his delivery.
What makes baseball different? It doesn't begin and end on a clock, like other sports. Sadly, many believe that relationships are stopped in their tracks when the sand in the hourglass runs out. They come up against the cement walls of mortal moments. And that's the end of a special relationship. It might be time to think differently. Perhaps the love that's shared goes way beyond the boundaries, like the baseball itself. Perhaps some moments really are forever!
From the enchanted days of summers past at Fenway to the promise of a spectacular tomorrow, a Catholic perspective might be helpful. "A Father, a Son & a 'Home' Run: Living in The Mystery of Paschal Time" is a sacramental journey. It celebrates the everyday beauty found within the very real contemplation of the Paschal mystery.
"Some times are just too grand and beautiful to settle into one small square on a kitchen wall calendar," the author writes. Consider your own special moments and relationships in the context of this story. In the Liturgy there are reasons for optimism. Get a glimpse of the tomorrow after tomorrow.
