February 25th (A Beautiful Sorrow: River of Loss)

Jesus and Peter quarrel over what it means to be the Christ. And in this quarrel we see the struggle death imposes.

“To live in this world
you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it
go,
to let it go.”
–Mary Oliver, “In Blackwater Woods”
