Poet and Author
"To go up alone into the mountains
And come back as an ambassador to the world,
has ever been the method of humanity's best friends.
The windows of Christ's Mysteries split the [Light] up into Many-coloured loveliness, disclose all of its hidden richness...make its beauty more accessible to us...And within this place we too are bathed in the light transmitted by the windows, a light which is yet the very radiance of Eternity."
PRAYER (traditional language):
O God, Origin, Sustainer, and End of all creatures: Grant that Thy Church, taught by thy servant Evelyn Underhill, guarded evermore by thy power, and guided by thy Spirit into the light of truth, may continually offer to thee all glory and thanksgiving, and attain with thy saints to the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast promised us by our Savior Jesus Christ; who with thee and the same Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, now and for ever.
