Two Lights, Fresh Snow

Unde quocumque venientes
perexerunt velut cum gaudio
caelestis paradisi susceptae sunt,
quia in religione morum
honorifice apparuerunt.
Coming from many different places,
they continued on their journey.
Wherever they went, they were
received with a joy like that of
celestial paradise because their
manner of life appeared worthy of honor.

Hildegard von Bingen  (1098 - 1179)
