Friday, April 6, 1973: From Father Alexander's Journal:
"What is happiness? It is to live as well as wel do now, with L., just the two of us, savioring every hour- morning coffee; two, three hours of quiet in the evening. No 'special' conversation. All is clear, and therefore so good!... As one approaches the essence of a thing, fewer and fewer words are needed. In eternity, in the Kingdom, only 'Holy, Holy, Holy' will be needed, only words of praise and thanks, only prayer and the brightness of fullness and joy."

"What happiness it all has been!"
