By Christi Ortiz

Sometimes I wonder if God hides our sinfulness from each other 
so we can stand to be around one another

Sometimes I wonder if God hides our glorious beauty from each other
so we don’t fall down in worship of one another

For we often fail to see the unending and abundant fountain 
of God’s Theophany in both the poverty and the power of our potentiality
