Altars in cathedrals laid bare
Tabernacles flung wide and empty
No Mass spoken
We must enter the emptiness
If we dare
If we will
If we can...
Must unknow what we think we know
Must forget what we have been told before
Must feel the pain of lost hope
Must ache with the guilt of words spoken or unspoken
Must wish for one more chance to express our love
With the Beloved Disicple
With those whose names we will never know and whose stories will never be told...
