And nothing will ever be the same.
Imagine innocence of Light, the meek and good among us being unexpectedly consumed into a void of darkness.
Imagine a world gone wrong as darkness overwhelms the Light – offering little hope in a world gone wrong.
Imagine circumstances beyond your control from which your life will inexplicably never ever be the same.
Imagine anyone being stripped of their identity with no past, present, or future while wandering misplaced with a tortured disability and terrifying existence, within an empty space of nothingness.
What could you do – where would you go – how might you survive – can there be any hope in hopelessness? Imagine being in such a dark place and how you might find ANY truth, peace, love, hope, joy, enlightenment, and your heart’s desire in the face of such adversity?
Onward and Foreword
Deep in the heart to each one of us lie innocence, malice, and an irreconcilable struggle for mastery over our souls. Alternately, they call out to us, each promising great reward if we will but ally ourselves with one or the other. But without a guide we cannot reach, nor understand or choose between them. To one belongs The Book of Darkness. If unopposed, it seeks its victim and is implacably victorious.
To the other belongs The Book of Light and a word (Eucatastrophe), but it must be found or its powerful message will be lost forever to the one who needs it most. But if a guide to the heart steps forward, then the person he summons can follow the navigator to the realm of indefatigable innocence. The Chronicles of Narnia are one way; The Lord of the Rings, another. But Mark Glamack offers a third way with an unpredictable page turner and an ending so surprising as to be utterly true to life in the world as we know it.
Littluns creates a path into human experience that guides us to the very core of our soul—providing a key to peace and endurance as we await the renewal of the world at the end of time.
Robert E. Maguire, O. Cist.
