The Eucharistic Moon
The moon rising full and round,
Reminds 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
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.
