Appearing on the lofty altars.
Held in boxes locked with gold.
There appears love consecrated.
a sacrifice for young and old.

Protected by the law of canon.
Brushed aside by scoffers tales.
Sits a host within a chalice
A hope for man which never fails.

Hope of hopes we find him waiting.
Man of Sorrows what a claim,
Neither fame nor fortune wanting.
Ever waiting, ever same.

Draw close to me He’s ever calling,
Lay your hurts upon my breast,
Come and spend one hour with Me,
I will give you peace and rest.

#saint agatha #feastday today, #poem

Chaste of Virgins deep in sorrow
How we grieve the pain you felt
But with suffering comes the promise
strength and force they will be sent

From the one who knows us better
never tempted more to bear
from above there comes his angels
to banish us from all despair

Chaste of Virgins, woman blessed
implore for us His graces still
to live a life that´s ever pleasing
always to do his Holy will
