In Preparation

"I will put my laws in their minds, and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people." Paul (Hebrews, 8:10)

We will translate the Gospel

In all languages

In all cultures

Exalting its magnificence

Emphasizing its sublimity

Spreading its poetry

Commenting on its truth

Interpreting its lessons

Impressing it upon our reasoning

Perfecting our hearts

Reforming our intelligence

Renovating laws

Improving customs

And illuminating pathways.

But the time will come

When the Glad Tidings will need to be imprinted within ourselves

In the intimacy of our minds

In the innermost depths of the heart

Through words and actions

Principles and ideals,

Aspirations and hopes,

Gestures and thoughts.

Because, verily,

If Heaven allows us to disseminate its Divine Message to the world,

One day we will be required to convert ourselves

Into the living examples of the Gospel on Earth.
