The Falanys and the Gills in Monterey

Filmed at the Monterey Presidio next to the statue of Father Junipero Serra overlooking Monterey Bay. The first Mass and communion service on the west coast was held there in 1602. It is also there under the same oak tree where Father Serra came 168 years later, in 1770, and held Mass when Spain was taking possession of California. But like the pilgrims at Plymouth Rock, it didn’t belong to Britain, and California didn’t belong to Spain – it was God taking possession.

“Lord, send revival to California & America!”
