Poem of the Day

Veiled in White

~Katherine Bittner

You Holy priests
gathered about the altar
I have a secret to tell.

I have watched and marveled
as when you approach the altar
upon which the Most Holy Sacrifice is offered
you bend and kiss its surface
with the greatest reverence and tenderness
veiled in white

Tomorrow is my wedding day
and when my bridegroom kisses me
I shall know what the altar feels
when you caress her with your devotion
veiled in white

Oh you who are Christ to us
in the sacrament of the alter,
In this Holy sacrifice of marriage
My bridegroom shall become Christ
and consecrate in me the Divine Image
veiled in white
