The Witness for Life Mass begins.
Gathering in communion with Christ and with one another ...
... they receive strength for the battle before them.
With boots on the ground ...
... and arrayed in the the armor of Christ, their leader ...
... they are ready to set forth.
They process up Mott Street ...
... led by the cross.
They are praying for the women ...
... and the workers.
The are praying for the unborn children ...
... and for the abortionists.
They pray for those who would face the choice today ...
... in the building before them, in New York, and beyond.
The prayers of exorcism begin.
The priest sprinkles holy water ...
... around the building ...
... encircling those inside.
The ritual asks God ...
... that all may see beyond the darkness ...
... and enter into the Light.
It is a prayer for deliverance.
The prayers ...
... and the sacrifice ...
... will have an effect ...
... as this woman knows.
After praying all the Mysteries of the Rosary ...
... they return to Old St. Patrick's Cathedral.
Back through the big doors they come ...
... to adore ...
... to worship ...
... and to give thanks.
