There is nothing I can give you, which you have not;
But there is much, very much, that while I cannot give it, you can take.
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in today.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present instant.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow.
Behind it, yet within reach, is joy
. . . . And so, at this time, I greet you.
Fra Giovanni 1513 A.D
