The Eucharistic Moon

The moon rising full
and round, in the east,
of the Host, in the hands of a priest;
The Lord is there to gaze upon, and see,
As if risen from out of eternity.

The One Who on the Cross was hung,
Comes to earth to be with us, among.

And as if, in rays of lunar light,
He's easier to look upon and see:
Not like the sun so blazing bright
But softer for the sight of humanity.

Flesh, for the eye is hidden,
Yet, to partake of it, we
're bidden.     ― John Riedell

This was
partially inspired by picture in a video of a Rosary mystery,
where at the far end of night-lit street, the moon is rising.
