BRIGHT SHINING

Do not disdain the penitential tears.They help to bringThe bright shining after the storm clears.

"Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied,"Could Peter say, and he could well thank GodFor being begotten into a lively hopeBy Jesus' resurrection from the dead.Do not forget the sad and bitter tearsThat followed hard upon the "I know him not."Through that remorse and through those very tearsA broadening of thought was possible.The full savor of the resurrection morning.Divine bliss in the ascension's glory,The comprehension of the Pentecost,Transfiguration understood in retrospect.
