"We are here because God -
the One who wants to be completely known -
has something to show us ...
We do not always see that we should be
moving about our days
and lives and places
with awe and reverence and wonder,
with the same soft steps with which we enter the room
of a sleeping child
or the mysterious silence of a cathedral.
There is no ground that is not
All of the places of our lives are sanctuaries;
some of them just happen to have steeples.
And all of the people in our lives are saints;
it is just that some of them have day jobs
and most will never have
feast days named for them."
