"Today" - the Eucharist of the ordinary

*For all of Brighton's early wakers and walkers*

"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."

(John O'Donohue)


Today is a new day;
it dawns fresh and blinking,
whether rain or shine.
It is Hope on coltish legs;
it waits for you to name it
Sunday, Monday, whatever:
it cares only to be made good.
It is naked of yesterday's sins;
only you could make it bad.
