Mass

The silence of sacrifice
Before the altar, in flickering
candle light.
Your gaze and grace
cast large across the ordinary
elements of bread,
true flesh, of wine,
pure blood.
Saints stock still in
mortal fragments,
sentinels of sanctity
guides to eternity.
Whispered prayers of the chapel
echo in haven, in orchestral majesty
as winged seraphs dance
in defeat of the Devil,
as holy light routs
corrupt darkness of clandestine foes.
For this moment is more,
more than mere seconds
of escaping time, but
a fraction of, a glance into
forever.
