      The concept of darkness versus light brings with it fear versus confidence. With darkness one can be overcome with obstacles which prevents us from seeing our way through. Our way becomes brighter with the light. Light ...

      Purcell, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2000-11-25)
