Street Preaching at Yankee Stadium
When Prodigal Daughter and I were starting to enter the stadium on Sunday to see the pope, we saw a few folks who were preaching ( yelling through bull horns at the Catholics.)
Initially, we watched from afar, but then PD thought we should chat with them a bit. So I had a rather lengthy interaction with one fellow who flew from Utah to preach to the "unsaved Catholics."
He had apparently read and memorized a little book called the Trail of Blood that was published in the late 19th century giving a twisted view of church history to prove that Baptists were always present since the days of John the Baptist and persecuted by the "false religion of Catholicism."
I prayed for him during Mass. I hoped he could hear the beautiful worship over the walls of Yankee Stadium as 55,000 Christians gathered to participate in the sacred meal celebrated since the time the Church was established on Peter and his successors.
