One Friar held a Monstrance contained the Blessed Sacrament, while another preached through a microphone. Spectators began to kneel and pray before Jesus, in the Host. Volunteers handed out prayer cards to the unsuspecting public in the surroundings. One spectator exclaimed: "This is so moving! It is the first time I have seen it done outside. I can't wait to tell my parish priest!" In one week the video has been viewed over 80,000 times on Youtube.
