C.S. Lewis's Grave

The other day I shared with you all our visit to The Kilns. After we finished up at the house, our family walked over to Holy Trinity Church in Oxford to see where C.S. Lewis was buried. We weren't sure exactly where the grave was so we walked around for a bit before a care taker kindly pointed it out. I don't think I've ever seen such a beautiful, peaceful, wonderful cemetery. I'd like to let the pictures and C.S. Lewis himself do whatever talking needs to be done.

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
― C.S. Lewis

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
― C.S. Lewis

“God can't give us peace and happiness apart from Himself because there is no such thing.”
― C.S. Lewis

“I didn’t go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.”
― C.S. Lewis

“[To have Faith in Christ] means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.”
― C.S. Lewis

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” C.S. Lewis
