The Cross glowed just as Bright

From Louis Penny’s mystery novel, “A Trick of the Light.”
“The skyline of Montreal was looming in the foreground now, across the river. And Mont Royal rose in the middle of the city. The huge cross on top of the mountain was invisible now, but every night it sprang to life, lit as a beacon to a population that no longer believed in the church, but believed in family friends, culture and humanity.
The cross didn’t seem to care. It glowed just as bright.”
