We are taught to take the breadinto our bodiesas proof of Jesus's body...Suddenly, we are wedand I am just as surprised as youthat marriage has become our bread...Look. I don't know whatwould help me believethat we have become sacred...If that was Easterthen the church was fullas we stood against the wallpraying for an empty pew.If that was Easterthen I rose that morningin love with youthough I rise every morningfrom the water, more or lessin love with you.If that was Easterthen you were askedto be the Eucharistic minister.If that was Easterthen you surprised meby placing salmon on my tongue.Then I surprised youby swallowing it whole.Amen, amen, amen.

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now Is hung with bloom along the bough, And stands about the woodland ride Wearing white for Eastertide.
A.E. Housman (1859 - 1936)
