This user also said, “This is so touching and sobering. Even the chaplain has to stay armed. Thank you for this awesome reminder of the power of Our Lord present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. However, this is adoration/benediction, not Mass.”

This user added, “Modern day Christian knights.”
Another user added, “That Godly courage is so rare.”
It sure is!
