Heaven United to Earth During Pilgrimage to the Stadium

(Of course, heaven is united to earth at EVERY Sacrifice of the Holy Mass...)


A lovely post from one of the cloistered Dominicans at the Rosary Shrine, a group of whom were able to attend the Mass at Yankee Stadium, "to be with our Holy Father who St. Catherine of Siena called our 'sweet Christ on earth. '"

The photos give a real impression of what it must have been like to be in that tremendous crowd.
"One of the highlights of being at this Papal Mass was experiencing the unity of the mystical body of Christ. It was a moment when we could unabashedly express our joy and pride at being Catholic."

If you haven't read it (I am very late catching up on my 'blog reading, so no doubt you have,) go do so.

Thanks so much for the link! I'll tell Sr. Virginia Mary!
The liturgy was so beautiful! And there was much reverence. You could hear a pin drop during the homily and during Holy Communion. One young fellow near us leaned over after Holy Communion to ask where we were from and the policeman near the priest giving Holy Communion put his finger to his lips and said, "Shhh." Every priest had a policeman in full dress blues with white gloves attending him. It gave me chills to see such reverence.
THe music was beautiful, too and everyone joined in at the Kyrie and Creed.
