Thanks for this, I actually saw the pictures of this on a friend’s Facebook but not the actual video!

I've seen this video a couple of times.

I like the fact that people stopped to adore Our Lord, but doesn't anyone else feel uncomfortable about Our Lord being carried around in a bag?

How do you think the Eucharist is brought to the hospital?

I also find several problems with this flash mob. IMO, great idea, poor execution.

The worship of the exposed Blessed Sacrament is a liturgical act. To that end, there should really be at least 4 candles present, and the priest should have at least placed a surplice over his habit before the stole, or even better, a cope. It's not just something you take out of a gym bag after flipping on a stole.

It could have been much better executed, in my mind, had they processed from a nearby church then stopped where they did, with the addition of candlebearers and vesture for the priest. Maybe a couple honor-guardsmen from the KofC, if available.

It wouldn't have been that hard to just do it right. Commendable idea though.

I’m guessing…In a pyx, which is in a little bag, which is hung around your neck?
