“We don’t use light bulbs or flashlights in chapels, even when the electricity goes out.  Even in the technological age.  We use candles to this day, the reminder that God is light, that we are part of the everlasting flame of life, that darknesses everywhere are expelled by the tiniest pinpoints of light….if we will only light them.”

Joan Chittister, Listen to the Heart
