It seems so simple and I knew it intellectually but I didn’t really get it until I was in the restroom and realized that kala is transubstantiation because the rite isn’t really done until you urinate but really EVERYTHING is transubstantiation, everything changes into something else. Sunlight into chlorophyll into food into energy into waste. Oxygen into carbon dioxide and back again through the plants. Flour and yeast and water into bread. Death into decay into mulch into new life. The Mystery of Transubstantiation isn’t just the Host into the Lord, it’s everything into everything. It’s just a reminder of the magic and mystery around us every moment of every day.
