'Look more often at the stars...'

"Dear brothers and sisters, the Lord, teaching us the way of Heaven, allows us to already foretaste the divine life on earth. A Russian author of the 1900s, in his spiritual testament, wrote: 'Look more often at the stars. When you have a weight on your soul, look at the stars or the blue of the sky. When you feel sad, when they offend you -- stop yourselves... with the heavens. Then your soul will find peace.'"

--Pope Benedict XVI quoting Pavel Florensky on May 16, 2010
