Threatened With Resurrection

Julia EsquivelFrom Guatemalan poet Julia Esquivel:

It is something within us that doesn’t let us sleep,
that doesn’t let us rest,
that won’t stop pounding
deep inside…

…because in this marathon of Hope,
there are always others to relieve us
who carry the strength
to reach the finish line
which lies beyond death.

Join us in this vigil
and you will know what it is to dream!
Then you will know how marvelous it is
to live threatened with Resurrection!

To dream awake
to keep watch asleep,
to live while dying,
and to know ourselves already resurrected.
