"There is much that we do not understand yet we know that there are horizons far beyond the limits of our sight and that if anything endures it is the integrity of a man of great faith, the courage of a man of undaunted hope, and the benediction upon our lives of a man of unmeasured compassion and love. Grant us O Lord, the grace of trust these things up to the gates of death and beyond."
