On this special Feast of Pentecost, Father Varghese and his
altar servers prepared the altar with special care.
|People leave sandals at the door and pack in closely together |
before the altar. Most sit cross-legged, with just a few
rows of chairs in the back.
|Faithful pray as temperatures soar in the crowded church.|
Open shutters provide little relief in temperatures more than
109 degrees F.
