It is a wish Dante expressed in immortal words: beholding the stars at last, after leaving the gloomy wood that forced his gaze to the ground, and being happy again. Like him, we stray “from the path direct”. Like Ulysses, we were made “to pursue virtue and knowledge high”. Like Paolo and Francesca, “we read no further”… Luckily, there is still a chance in life for meeting Beatrice. Dante’s words, like the words of some present-day Saints, will lead us through the “gloomy wood” to behold light again.
