Christian pilgrims praying (Saigon)

Pilgrims gather to pray around the base of a statue of the Virgin Mary in front of the Saigon Cathedral. Anything or anyone that touches the base of this statue becomes holly.­ Many pilgrims had small bottles of water that they would hold against the red stone, to make holy water.­
