"Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come."
There is a radiance and glory in the darkness could we but see; And to see we have only to look.
And so, at this time we greet you, not quite as the world sends greetings, but with the prayer that for you, now and forever, the day breaks
and the shadows flee away.
~Attributed to Fra Giovanni, 1603
