Snow falling on prayer books 3

From my continuing and occasional foray into church-related haiku:

Sixteen songs, three days,
fingers afire: guitarist
during Holy Week

"Small sacrifice"
Forty seven days
With no Pepsi; headache plagued
but four pounds lighter

"First Communion"
The wafer? Okay.
But that wine? His little mouth
puckered in protest

The images are the perfect summary of Holy Week and the Great Vigil of Easter.
