Litany Response: “A Day!”

Do we really apprehend what a day is? Do we feel its importance? Do we know its capacity?

A day!

It has risen upon us from the great depth of eternity, girt round with wonder; emerging from the womb of darkness; a new creation of Life and Light spoken into being by the word of God.

A day!

In itself one entire and perfect sphere of space and time, filled and emptied of the sun.

A day!

Every past generation is represented in it—it is the flowering of all history.

A day!

And in so much it is richer and better than all other days which have preceded it.

A day!

And we have been recreated to new opportunities with new powers;

A day!

Called to this utmost promontory of actual time, this centre of all converging life.

A day!

And it is for to-day’s work we have been endowed—its is for this that we are pressed and surrounded with these facilities.

A day!

The sum of our entire being is concentrated here and to-day is all the time we absolutely have. Celebrate today.

A day!

Amen.
