All Souls Day at the Border

Every year, On the Feast of All Souls, Mexican and US Catholics meet at the border to celebrate Mass. This year the co-celebrants were Archbishop Leon of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, Bishop Ramirez of Los Cruces, New Mexico and Bishop Ochoa of El Paso, Texas. Among the striking symbols obvious at the celebration were the Altar divided by the border fence and the sharing of the sign of peace through the fence. Here is a short video about this Mass.
