Holiness

What if you resolved
—without knowing just what it means—
to live this day in holiness?

What if—without knowing
much about it at all—
you let your life be part
of a great, sacred mystery
unfolding around us every moment?

What if—without proof—
every moment is a prayer:
the breakfast table is a sacred altar,
the tying of one’s shoes
is a sacrifice to God,
a conversation is a priestly blessing?

A great hovering Spirit
—without your knowing
just what that is—
would make sure
holiness is attained.
