    “…he saw the sublime in the commonplace activity of bakers”

    is reminiscent of a poem said to be based n a Celtic prayer:

    Be gentle when you touch bread
    Let it not lie uncared for–unwanted
    So often bread is taken for granted
    There is so much beauty in bread
    Beauty of sun and soil, beauty of honest toil
    Winds and rain have caressed it,
    Christ often blessed it
    Be gentle when you touch bread.
