"It was a practice in which ordinary people in their daily lives took the tasks that lay to hand but treated them sacramentally, as pointing to a greater reality which lay before them. It is an approach to life which we have been in danger of losing, the sense of allowing the ordinary to break in on the ordinary."

-- Esther de Waal, quoted in Nora Gallagher's "Things Seen and Unseen"
