After Mass we gathered on the steps to sing hymns and make Our Lady of the Dawn Gate visible to New York by holding up her picture. Many heads among motorists and passengers turned to look more closely. Normally we come and go quietly through the basement entrance singly, in pairs or small groups. Today we were all present and visible at once on the front steps, as it would be every Sunday if our roof was repaired and our sanctuary restored to us.
