In honor of the day

At his birthing a new light was revealed in a star.  At His dying an ancient light was dimmed.
At His birthing the dwellers above took on new light, new glory.  At His dying the dwellers below trembled with a new fear.
At His rising his disciples caught fire with a new love.
At the moment of His ascending the Heavens learned how to usher Him in with ceremony and courtesy.
- Saint Augustine of Hippo
