The outside of the tomb was a scene of chaos, excitment, and disorder. But it was no mosh pit; anytime someone dropped a pair of glasses or other personal belongings, the crowd would stop and give way. If someone felt faint, they were brought a glass of water. Inside the tomb structure, the pushing crowds eventually gave way to devotionalistic circles of psalm-sayers and song-singers, praying at the tomb for help. There are many who belittle this practice of going to a saint's tomb and asking him to intercede on your behalf. I just hope, when I have the need, that my heart will be that open.
