January 4, eleventh day of christmas

Even celebrations are about waiting
The last day being almost as big as the first
Sometimes the middle part becomes dull
So much feasting, but it is mixed with waiting

It seems that sometimes we remember everyone
So many followed Christ
So many saw his nature
So many spent their life on their faith

We wait, and we remember,
Today it is the seventy
Those first ministers, called by Christ himself
Every name remembered individually on another day

Today we remember that Christ built a community
Giving enough power to those he made his apostles
