To look unblinking at the Light

I love an author called Thomas Kelly.  But just now I want to post a quote not of his, but of something said of him when he died in 1941:

“I was filled with a kind of joy when I read of Thomas Kelly…I feel I want to sing when I hear of such men emerging.  I know it is an outward loss to us–though even directly we may gain more than we lose by their joining the more active side of the communion…but I keep on feeling what it must be…to be able to push aside this fussy veil of the body and look unblinking at the Light…”
