Worshippers filled St. Patrick's Cathedral on Christmas Day celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Timothy Cardinal Dolan led Friday's Mass.
The theme was borrowed from the beloved holiday film "It’s a Wonderful Life."
“It's a wonderful life as we acknowledge that God's plan is infinite and wise. It's a wonderful life as we confess as Christians this Christmas morning that we are a part of God's plan" the Cardinal said.
The Cardinal's words left a deep impact on those who heard them.
St. Pat's proved to be even merrier for newlyweds Gregory Deeck and Jessica Wilson from Melbourne, Australia.
They reflected on their hopes and wishes for Christmas and the coming New Year.
"Happy Holidays!" they said.
