are with Him.

Let us not mourn them.

Let us rather envy them...

...that they could go joyfully

and with pride in the service of their belief.

Jesus spoke to us of death...

...the night he faced his own.

The night they took him before Pilate.

It was our last supper together.

After we had risen from the table,

he washed our feet...

...and then he spoke.

He told us that in his Father's house

are many mansions,...

...that he went to prepare a place for us there.

"That where I am," he said,

"there you may be also. "

Our friends are in our Father's house.

Some day we'll all walkthat same road,...

...and at its end we'll find them.

Find our master...

...and his everlasting love.

- Amen.

- (crowd) Amen.

I know whatyou say is true, Peter.

But it's still in my mind that

only yesterday they were warm with life.

Young, breathing,...


- Now it's...

- They never doubted.

I'm sorry, Peter,...

...but I loved them so much.

Even Jesus himself on the cross

thought he was forsaken.

I remember.

Only you, of all of us here, have that memory.

You saw him on his cross.

But we all saw desolation

give way to joy, death to life.

Friends, while I'm away in the north,...

...Demetrius will be

my eyes, my ears, my voice.

Come to him with your problems

as you would come to me.

This was our master's robe.

He wore it when he healed the sick.

He wore it when he comforted the sorrowing.

He wore it when he spoke to the multitudes

as no man has ever spoken.

He wore it when he went

to the cross to die for us.

Keep it for me.

Keep it.

You saved it for us.

- God be with you all.

- (crowd) God be with you, Peter.

Good morning, Demetrius.

- You never make a mistake, do you, Kaeso?

- I'd know your step anywhere.

- Peter's safely on the road.
