Way to Heaven






"Each one reaches heaven by climbing his own particular stairway."


I received this picture in 1979
on the occasion of the priestly ordination
of a person who was dear to me.

I don't know whether he still believes in the inscription...

But I do!

    2. I will agree with the sentiment on one condition - no claim that all stairs get you to the same place, the Vivekanandaesque assertion, ampere assert ion, neither provable nor dis provable; an analytic.

  3. The inscription is right. To climb to heaven we have to build our own stairs. Nice text.
