Christmas Prayer by Fra. Giovanni (Dubuque)

Fra Giovanni’s Christmas Prayer on 10"x 15" broadsheet in professional calligraphy created for us by an artist friend in 1989. It's preserved in very good condition. Fra Giovanni's prayer comes from 1513.
"I salute you!
There is nothing I can give you which you have not;
but there is much that, while I cannot give, you can take.

No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take Heaven.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in the present moment. Take Peace.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our reach is joy. Take Joy!"
For someone who will appreciate it.
