CHAPTER XXI - The Opening of the Church

she looked round. And she knew, by the shape of the head bent in the black scarf, it was Carlota, creeping along on her knees to the altar steps.
The whole church was frozen in horror. `Saviour! Saviour! Jesus ! Oh Holy Virgin!' Carlota was moaning to herself as she crawled along.
It seemed hours before she reached the altar steps. Ramon , still stood below the great Quetzalcoatl image with arm upflung.
Carlota crouched black at the altar steps and flung up the white hands and her white face in the frenzy of the old way.
`Lord! Lord!' she cried, in a strange ecstatic voice that froze Kate's bowels with horror: `Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!'
Carlota strangled in her ecstasy. And all the while, Ramon, the living Quetzalcoatl, stood before the flickering altar with naked arm upraised, looking with dark, inalterable eyes down upon the woman.
Throes and convulsions tortured the body of Carlota. She gazed sightlessly upwards. Then came her voice, in the mysterious rhapsody of prayer:
`Lord! Lord! Forgive!
`God of love, forgive! He knows not what he does.
`Lord! Lord Jesus! Make an end. Make an end, Lord of the world, Christ of the cross, make an end. Have mercy on him, Father. Have pity on him!
`Oh, take his life from him now, now, that his soul may not
die.
Her voice had gathered strength till it rang out metallic and; terrible.
`Almighty God, take his life from him, and save his soul.'
And in the silence after that cry her hands seemed to flicker ; in the air like flames of death.
`The Omnipotent,' came the voice of Ramon, speaking quietly, as if to her, `is with me, and I serve Omnipotence!'
She remained with her white clasped hands upraised, her white arms and her white face showing mystical, like onyx, from her thin black dress. She was absolutely rigid. And Ramon, with his arm too upraised, looked down on her abstractedly, his black brows a little contracted.
