The cup and the wine

Christ offers the cup and we take itwillingly, knowingthe wine would escape through our fingerswithout the cup to contain it—a cup shaped and deepened and polishedby life's daily challenge and victory.

Love won't deny us the opportunity of the cupemblazoned with the imprint of the cross,for it is this cup—stamped with self-immolation, the lovethat replaces fear, the courage in tribulation—which holds our sweet wine,our sweet inspiration.
