i –the distance across the young and the old;
you –the battle between the he and the she
behold, all you sons and daughters of Mary

+ Songs and Praises, in the air
miter –the office of the superior and inferior;
crosier –the significance of the all the heir
behold, all you pilgrim peoples of Peter.

behold, all you tribes of the apostles.
