The Steady Gleam

'All the lights of this world, radiant in their brilliance and wealth and flashing splendour, cannot compare with the pure, steady gleam of Faith.

'No earthly light can show us God.  No blaze from the fires of this world can light up the mysteries of life, or reveal Eternal Truths.

'No!  It is the fixed, constant, and unchanging Ray of Faith that turns darkness into day, and exchanges doubt for certainty.

'Faith gives not only light, but understanding and acute vision also.  All that we can see, we know was made from invisible things.

'Faith pierces the visible and gives a glimpse of the Invisible.'

from The Living Pyx of Jesus by A Religious, Pellegrini, Australia, 1941,  p.120
