Eternal Light

"O grace abounding and allowing me to dare
to fix my gaze on the Eternal Light,
so deep my vision was consumed in it!

I saw how it contains within its depths
all things bound in a single book by love
of which creation is the scattered leaves... "

from Dante's Paradiso XXXIII, 82–87 (as translated by Mark Musa)
