Each day is a holy place

We seldom notice how each day is a holy place
Where the eucharist of the ordinary happens,
Transforming our broken fragments
Into an eternal continuity that keeps us.

Somewhere in us a dignity presidents
That’s more gracious than the smallness
That fuels us with fear and force,
A dignity that trusts the form a day takes.

So at the end of this day, we give thanks
For being concerned to the unknown
And for the secret work
Through which the mind of the day
And wisdom of the soul become one.

John O’Donohue
