“No heaven can come to us unless our hearts
find rest in today. Take heaven!
No peace lies in the future that is not
hidden in his present moment. Take peace!
The gloom of this world is but a shadow.
Behind it, yet within reach, is joy.
There is a radiance and glory in the
darkness, could we but see, and to see
we have only to look. I beseech you to look.
Life is so generous a giver….”
– Fra Giovanni
