So many voices, so many words,

so many messages and messengers;

So many images, so many ideas,

so many symbols and rituals;

So many paths, so many quests,

so many ways and practices;

All of which seek to speak of you, O God,

all of which seek to make you known;


But, at the perfect moment,

in the perfect pitch,

with the perfect resonance,

you spoke, and stilled all other sounds,

as in the silence all voices,

and all ears

knew that the Final Word had been uttered.


And so, Christ, Word of God, speak to us again,

and transform us into echoes

of your perfect, beautiful, creative, compassionate, eternal, final,
