What could it mean? ...

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory,
glory as of the only Son  from the father. - John 1:14

“A cloud of incense was rising on high; 
the people suddenly all bowed low; what could it mean?

The truth flashed on him, fearfully yet sweetly;
it was the Blessed Sacrament - it was the Lord 
Incarnate who was on the altar, who had come
to visit and bless His people.

It was the Great Presence, which makes a Catholic Church
different from every other place in the world,
which makes it, as no other place can be – holy.”

Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman
