Holiness and faith are the rewards:
In doing lies the promise of becoming.
Given what a life of faith affords,
How could one not still be in the running?

Holy days are opportunities,
Open doors to being who one would.
Longing to be touched by grace, one sees
Yet one more chance to choose the wished-for good.

Do not think that faith is ever certain:
All one's life, like love, it comes and goes.
Yet one can always stand before the curtain,
Singing for one's soul the prayers one knows.
