Jesus said to his disciples:
 I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!
(Gospel)       

Growth

And all that is
living and true
and of growth
is slow and steady

there are rupturings
and tearings

(seeming violences)

all known and
expected
in the seed
it was a slow steady
growth that could
not be rushed

certain things had to
come first
in the growing
of mystery without
and within
