the templarhalls of museums, for
example, orthe chambers of churches,
and admireno more than the beauty
there, orremember the graveness
of stone, orwhatever. You don’t
have to do anybetter. You don’t have to
understandthe liturgy or know history
to feel holyin a gallery or presbytery.
It is enoughto have come just so far.
You neednot be opened any more
than doesa door, standing ajar.
