"we try to keep a vital balance on the thin rope of life that is stretched between the two definitive poles [birth and death] that mark our chronological lives. we are surrounded by the reality of the unseen and the unknown, which fills every part of our life with terror but at the same time holds the secret mystery of our being alive. that secret is this: 'though we walk in darkness, we have seen a great light' (matthew 4:16). and this light, while it can be masked, cannot go out, as it shines for all eternity." p.78-9
