Approaching, participating... life eternal...

"It is impossible to look upon the Divinity and not to love it.
However, here below we do not see it, but only have a glimpse of it 
through the shadows of faith, seeing as in a mirror." - St Francis de Sales

Byzantine Hymn 
Sung between Consecration and Communion

“Now the heavenly powers join invisibly
with us in adoration.

Behold, it is the King of Glory
Who is coming in procession.
that which is carried
is the mystical sacrifice already completed.

In faith and in awe
do we approach to participate in life eternal.”
