Transubstantiation

Transubstantiation
Betsy McKenzie

Not only bread and wine;
There is some miracle
By which sweat and tears,
The more mundane pains and sorrows
Of everyday people who share in Christ’s
Crucifixion,
Are transformed.
Properly transubstantiated,
Our griefs and deprivations
Lift us up, move us onto a higher plane.
Raised high, like our Lord,
We spread our arms, and
Prepare to be reborn.
