Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan led the annual Christmas Eve Midnight Mass held at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown Manhattan, where thousands of Christians celebrated the holiday.

Both the ceremony and the venue, located at 460 Madison Ave., are historic. Seating was only available by reserved seating.

Cardinal Dolan’s sermon included a hopeful message that this Christmas will serve as a much-needed break to the string of tragedies the Tri-state area has experienced in recent months.
