At the Elevation

The bells sit on the step of the sanctuary in St. John's Chapel at St. Michael's Cathedral.

I had never in my life attended such a stunning Mass.  The Mass became – what in reality it is – an absolutely supernatural act.  When the bells rang at the elevation of the Host, then of the Chalice, Padre Pio was immobilized in contemplation.  How long?...Ten, twelve minutes, maybe longer…
