+ Signs and Symbols, around the nave-entrée
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.

+ Chant and Stories, from the great book

paper –the message between what and how
behold, all you nations and tongues of his flock.

him –the sacrifice of death unto his prey
behold, all you tribes of the apostles.
