Morning sentinel.  Berkeley USA, December 2012

“Faith sees what is.
In Time and in Eternity.
Hope sees what will be.
In time and for eternity.
In the future of eternity so to speak.

“Charity loves what is.
In Time and in Eternity.
God and her neighbor.
As Faith sees.
God and creation.
But Hope loves what will be.
In time and for eternity.

“In the future of eternity so to speak.

“Hope sees what as yet is not and will be.
She love what as yet is not and will be
In the future of time and eternity.”

– Charles Péguy, fervent Roman Catholic, poet, polemicist,
who died on on the battlefield, 4 September 1914, shot,
the day before the Battle of the Marne.
