Father, glorify your name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.…
A moment before he uttered his last sigh he called the herald who had carried his banner before him in all his battles, and commanded him to fasten to the top of a lance the shroud in which the dying prince was soon to be buried. "Go," said he, "carry the lance, unfurl this banner; and while you lift up this standard, proclaim, 'This, this is all that remains to Saladin the Great (the conqueror and the king of the empire) of all his glory.'" Christians, I perform today the office of this herald. I fasten to the staff of a spear sensual and intellectual pleasures, worldly riches, and human honours. All these I reduce to the piece of crape in which you will shortly be buried. This standard of death I lift up in your sight, and I cry, "This, this is all that will remain to you of the possessions for which you exchanged your souls."
