Sacred mud.

"Are we not then all gardeners working the landscape of our lives in every season? ... The Buddhists have a saying: 'Out of the mud, the lotus blooms.' Christians call it the Paschal Mystery. By whatever name we know it, however, as we ponder this phenomenal truth we can't help but wonder: Could it be more than just mere coincidence that the resurrected Jesus chose to appear first to a woman--Mary Magdalene--as she was working her way through a spring garden?" (Mary Ruth Broz, R.S.M and Barbara Flynn, Midwives of on Unnamed Future, ACTA)
