OUTSIDE THE CHURCH

Communion

Outside the church the wind is cold
Two persons and the Holy Mass
One afraid to be exposed
To the jeopardizing virus

Solemn man and priest as one
The substance and the instrument
Bread and wine to be transformed
Performer and communicant

May be in some winter hence
If true religion is forbidden
That this will come to be the way
Of having transubstantiation

So that the two become one Christ
The world itself is sacrificed
