Holiness comes wrapped in the ordinary

Holiness comes wrapped in the ordinary. There are burning bushes all around you. Every tree is full of angels. Hidden beauty is waiting in every crumb. – Plato

I found this quote, the first sentence of which is as good an encapsulation of what I believe as I’ve ever read, on Kerry Landreth’s beautiful blog, Next Trip Around the Sun.

    I think that quote would properly be attributed to Macrina Wiederkehr. I’m not enough of a scholar to know if Plato could have been at all familiar with the Book of Exodus, but it seems unlikely.
