Rejoicing in hope...

No law promises so  great a recompense as that which we are promised in the law of Christ.  To the Saracens are offered rivers of milk and honey, to the Jews the promised land.  But to Christians angelic glory.  "They shall be as the angels in heaven" (Matthew 22:30).  Thinking on this, St. Peter says, in the Gospel, "Lord, to whom shall we go?  Thou hast the words of eternal life."  (John 6:69)  
~St. Thomas Aquinas

O how abundant is Your goodness,
which You have laid up for those who fear You!
~Psalm 31:19
