We are startled to see the sacred ministers prostrate themselves before a bare altar. Then a veiled cross is gradually uncovered as “Behold the wood of the cross on which hung the Savior of the world! Come let us adore Him!” is sung three times. How do we adore the broken Body of Christ? Are we moved to adore Him? Can we hope, believe?

Tree, which solely wast found worthy the world's Victim to sustain. Harbor from the raging tempest! Ark, that saved the world again! Tree, with sacred blood anointed of the Lamb for sinners slain.
—Crux Fidelis, 6th Century
