“I salute you!  There is nothing

I can give you which you have not;

but there is much, that, while

I cannot give, you can take.

 

No heaven can come to us unless

our hearts find rest in it today.

Take heaven.

 

No peace lies in the future which

is not hidden in this present instant.

Take peace.

 

The gloom of the world is but a

shadow; behind it, yet, within our

reach, is joy.

 

Take Joy.

 

And so…I greet you, with the prayer

that for you, now and forever, the

day breaks and the shadows flee

away.

~Fra Giovanni Giocondo (1433-1515)
