La Papesse II (The High Priestess) – Tarot series; major arcana

I am Joan, custodian of the Church of John
Hailed by the beloved at the gnostic altar
I vowed to conceal his mysteries with my veil
I am drunk with the thick honeyed milk of the Grail
I am the anointed soul who will not falter,
A Priestess in the cult of the arriving dawn.
