The Wall and Prayer

Just finished watching the latter part of the Mass just celebrated by Cardinal O'Malley at the "wall" that separates the human persons living on one side in Mexico from the human persons living on the other side in the United States. I didn't realize it until watching this Mass that one can actually see through the wall. Here are some images of this travesty:

A platform had been set up right in front of the wall; it was upon that platform that Mass was celebrated.

And people received the Lord even through the wall:

It was stunning as I watched the Cardinal give the final blessing. You could see through the fence to the people in Mexico, only a few feet away, blessing themselves as the prayer was pronounced. Seems that prayer can break through any obstacle.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
