Forty Hours 2014 at Holy Innocents in NYC - Opening Mass

These are pictures of the opening Mass of the Forty Hours Prayer (Devotion) at the Church of the Holy Innocents this past weekend (from Friday November 7th, 2014 through Sunday, November 9th, 2014).

Part of the intentions of many people participating in this beautiful traditional devotion was thanksgiving for the fact that the Church of the Holy Innocents has been allowed to remain open by the Archdiocese of New York.

In time for this devotion, there were newly refurbished Altar candlesticks and Cross (which arrived a little before the time of the Mass), along with the Monstrance that is used (more or less) only once a year.
