A Pagan Prayer
Good people will therefore say when they are dying:
I leave full of greatness to you [God], for you have judged me worthy of celebrating this festival with you, of contemplating your works, and of following together with you the way in which you govern the world.
-from the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius
How much more should we rejoice, we who have been invited to the Eternal Wedding Feast of the Lamb!
