Hey NYer! This isn’t exactly related to this thread but thought you might be interested in seeing this video. If it’s been posted on FR before, I apologize for the repeat. The kids and I just watched it and found it both encouraging and sad. Hope the link works!

How many of us come and kneel before Him now, like the young girl with the yellow hoodie did?
How many of us walk by quickly while he is right in front of us... like the guy in black with the backpack did?
How many of us are just plain confused like the 2 guys were?
How many of us listen but then turn our back and walk away like the Asian girl?
How many of us miss His presence because we are too busy on our cell phones or paying more attention to what our friends are doing like the group of girls were doing?
How many of us want to stay in His presence and follow Him like the woman in blue?

Thank you very much for the link. I believe that video was posted last year but it is worth reposting. Fr. Z had it on his blog and there were some mixed opinions. One can't help but notice the stark contrast between the action of elevating God in the midst of a busy shopping district and the reactions of the populous. How many simply look, gawk, sneer, giggle and walk away while a select group drops down on their knees in adoration. It takes great strength of faith for those monks to challenge the masses to draw their attention to God Almighty.

Thank you again for the post. I had not seen it in a while and, though painful to watch the crowds' reaction, a bittersweet reminder that God still walks among us. God bless you!
