    POURED IN FOR EASTER SUNDAY
    MASS.
    CARDINAL DOLAN DESCRIBES THE
    ATTACK AS EVIDENCE OF THE EVIL
    THAT STILL EXISTS IN THE WORLD.
    THEY SPOKE TO SOME PRIESTS FROM
    SRI LANKA SAYING THAT ATTACK
    WILL NOT SHAKE THEIR FAITH.
    THERE IS A RESILIENCE, A
    HOPE, A CONVICTION THAT THIS
    WILL NOT EXTINGUISH OUR FAITH.
    THEY ARE THE ONES THAT WILL
    GIVE US HOPE.
    THE ONES THAT WILL INTERIORIZE
    THE MESSAGE OF EASTER.
    THE VICTIMS WERE IN HIS
    PRAYER.
    THE DEADLY BOMBINGS ARE
    HITTING CLOSE TO HOME FOR SOME

    ALL THAT WE DO, USE OUR
    PRAYERS.
    Reporter: JULIA LIVES IN
    TOMPKINSVILLE.
    SHE STARTED THIS DAY WITH THE
    SHOCK AND SADNESS OF LEARNING
    ABOUT TERROR IN HER NATIVE
    LAND.
    AFTER ARRIVING AT THIS
    RESTAURANT OWNED BY HER FATHER,
    SHE FOUND SHE COULDN'T GET
    THROUGH ON HER USUAL WAYS OF
    COMMUNICATING WITH FAMILY
    THERE.
    ALL THE SOCIAL MEDIAS ARE
    BANNED RIGHT NOW.
    IT'S KIND OF HARD TO CONTACT
    ANY OF OUR FAMILY MEMBERS.
    WHO DO YOU HAVE THERE?
    MY WHOLE FAMILY.
    MY GRANDMA, MY COUSINS,
    BROTHERS.
    I KNOW MY FAMILY IS FINE, BUT
    WE WERE DEVASTATED WITH WHAT'S
    HAPPENING.
    STATEN ISLAND BECAME POPULAR
    WITH THOUSANDS FLEEING THE
    CIVIL WAR.
    IN STATEN ISLAND, THE
    NEIGHBORHOOD IS THE DIVERSE
    CONGREGATION OF THE ROMAN
    CATHOLIC CHURCH.
    MY HEART GOES OUT TO THEM.
    I FEEL AT A TIME LIKE THIS, IT
    IS VERY NICE TO SEE OUR
    COMMUNITY COME TOGETHER IN
    PRAYER AND ALSO IN SUPPORT.
    PEOPLE ARE PRAYING, HOPING
    MANY WILL GET EXTRA ATTENTION
    IN TERMS OF SECURITY.
    THE LOCAL POLICE IS VERY
    RESPONSIVE TO OUR NEEDS.
    WE FEEL AND SEE THEIR PRESENCE.
    OF COURSE, OUR LADY IS
    PROTECTING US.
    THESE OFFICERS ARE WATCHING
    OVER THE SRI LANKA ART.
    STANDING GUARD EVEN WHEN THE
    MUSEUM IS CLOSED.
    MORE OFFICERS WERE STATIONED
    OUTSIDE THE TEMPLE.
    ON STATEN ISLAND, POLICE
    TELLING THE PUBLIC TO WORSHIP
    WITHOUT FEAR.
