Christ is in our midst!!

His Holiness is quoting a proverb attributed to many sources.

When you were born, you cried, and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice. This and close variants of it are also often cited as an "Indian" proverb, a Tibetan Buddhist proverb or a Cherokee proverb.[\quote]
