Agnus Dei

Monologue/Short Play
By Jim Dalglish

It’s Christmas and Tim has decided to do something about his clandestine affair with a man he’s actually never met - outside of the confessional of his local Catholic church.  

“Even though you’ve never kissed me, or held me, or even touched me... I’ve known for a long time that you love me too.  I can feel it when you preach... I can sense it right now as you sit there behind the screen, alone in the dark, clutching your rosary to your chest.” - Tim
