Like the Sequoia which packages within a seed weighing 1/5000th of an ounce I,000 year longevity cloaked in towering majesty, another way to say "Redemption" her poem "Resurrection" makes Faith tangible, easy to grasp, deciphering the babel of doubt, simply, plainly and without gloss, as Francis of Assisi said of Gospel proclamation, "Use words if you must." Great poem Michelle!
