Thread: #CSLewis on #friendship

A major theme of the #Narnia books is friendship

The opening scene within Narnia in the 1st book to be published (Lion, Witch & Wardrobe) is the faun Tumnus pretending to be a friend to Lucy.
The last scene of the last book (Last Battle) is Lucy with her oldest Narnian friend, now a true friend, Tumnus.
We know that Lewis thought there should be novels about friendship because he complained in his 'Four Loves' that there weren't any.

This is a big hint why his novels written much later cover the theme so thoroughly.

We’ll see this theme runs through every book.

Un chico o una chica se casan con la princesa o el príncipe. Este argumento de los cuentos clásicos desvela un deseo profundo del ser humano: llegar a ser reyes. A lo mejor no sabes que tú ya lo eres. Te lo cuento en #HilosDelEvangelio #HiloDeCristoRey #Narnia #CristoRey
Antes, os explico que hoy es la fiesta de “Jesucristo, Rey del Universo”, que se hace coincidir con el último domingo del año con un fin pedagógico. Siguiendo con el símil del cuento, es el “y fueron felices y comieron perdices”. [spoiler] Al final de la historia ¡Cristo Reina!
Pero ¿cómo el último domingo del año?, dirás. Si estamos en noviembre aún.

I took this photo in #HurstbourneTarrant, England. It reminded me extremely powerfully of the door into Archenland, "The Horse And His Boy". And it's great in its own right.
Close-up of that above. You see what I mean.
