Excerpt from Heaven: Six Sermons
When, in the hush that falls upon a completed life, the spirit of a just man is made perfect, it is hard to turn back from our gazing into heaven to trace again the earthly way by which that soul came to the heights of its transfiguration. But love demands again the old familiar paths, and it is found that the footprints in the vanishing dust are the very least that remains to guide men as they tread where their companion has trod. Everywhere the air is scintillant with gleaming inspirations. The atmosphere is laden with the aroma of holiness. Men and women and children arise to call him blessed. The lamp that he kindled for his own way has given its flame to a thousand others. The words he spoke are yet echoing in many lives.
