A GRASSROOTS EUCHARISTIC ‘REVIVAL’ UNFOLDS IN THE BRONX
March 28, 2023 .
On the night of Ash Wednesday, hundreds of Catholics poured into the church of Holy Cross Parish in the Bronx, New York.
They represented the broad diversity of Catholicism in New York City: some were English-speakers, some spoke mostly Spanish, they came from Dominican, Puerto Rican, and African communities, from Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and from parishes on suburban Long Island or New Jersey. There were lay people, priests, and religious brothers and sisters. There was even Bishop Joseph Espaillat, a New York auxiliary bishop resident in the Bronx.

They had all come to pray, to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, exposed in a monstrance on the altar. They had come to praise the Lord. “And the house was just packed. It was kind of like wall-to-wall, and it was kind of like a moment of Pentecost,” said Fr. Vincent Druding, parochial vicar at Holy Cross, the priest who organized that Ash Wednesday prayer service.

“There were prayer teams, and music, and people just came and kneeled in the sanctuary close to the Lord. And by midnight, there were like 600 people there, still just praying and praising — and in the style of our communities; the style of the Caribbean Catholic culture is very charismatic, so that’s the style. And we’ve done all this bilingual, English and Spanish, and it’s been powerful. And people were just praising God, and it went on like that all night,” Druding said. “And that was really the beginning.”
CBS NEWS BARS STAFF FROM USING TERM ‘TRANSGENDER’ TO REFERENCE NASHVILLE SHOOTER 
This isn’t about truth. It’s about narrative. It’s about propaganda.
CBS News is reportedly ordering staff not to use the term “transgender” to describe the shooter responsible for Monday’s horrific shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville that left six dead, including three 9-year-old children.
Police identified the shooter as a 28-year-old transgender and did not rule out that gender identity may have been a factor in a manifesto that was left behind, but network executives issued a memo to employees urging them to stay away from such coverage, according to The New York Post.

“The shooter’s gender identity has not been confirmed by CBS News. As such, we should avoid any mention of it as it has no known relevance to the crime.”
