Sumario: This article analyzes the ambiguity of the mystical experience suffered by the narrative instance in the short story "Misa de ocho", by Yolanda Oreamuno. This ambiguity is produced because the Christian mystical rapture is tainted by paganism: the rite becomes intimate through physically sensitive elements (light, colour, music), and ends in a dancing outburst that is very close to an erotic rapture. Thus, it is a non Catholic epiphany, rather than one related to pre- Christian religions, linked to the Earth, the feminine, the physical and the erotic.
