Lowest things, knit with highest...

"The Mass is the most excellent of all prayers." - St Augustine

"What Christian can doubt
that at the very hour of the Offering, 
at the words of the priest,
the Heavens are opened,
the choirs of Angels are present
in that Mystery of Jesus Christ,
the lowest things are knit with the highest,
the earthly things are united with the heavenly,
the visible and the invisible are made one."

St Gregory the Great
