This day, too,
is a resurrection,
therefore we praise
the Most Holy Miracle.

This breath, and this one,
is a promise fulfilled.
Praise and thanks
to Life Eternal.

These tears
are a baptism
that make holy
our dusty humanity;

And this crusty loaf of bread,
broken and shared again,
is an ongoing revelation
until we understand.

For the hours
and the milestones
that mark this journey,
we praise the Holy Mystery.
