The World Was Not So Dark Anymore

Chapter 2, “The World Was Not So Dark Anymore,” uses the image of light to describe the effect of the Ideal after the intensity of their wartime experience: “Like the morning sun, God radiated his presence on a world that was rediscovering peace after the long nightmare of war.” They found that God, who is Love itself, was present all around them—in the Eucharist, in each and every neighbor, in the Church, in Jesus in their midst when they gathered in his name, in Scripture.
