Contemplation

Fourteenth Sunday After Pentecost

... we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has its inner light, even from a distance—

and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it, we already are

—From A Walk, Rainer Maria Rilke (translated by Robert Bly)
