The Eid is Over

The four-day Eid following Ramadan just finished and the schedule will resume back to normal tomorrow. Mail delivery should be on schedule once more, except that many people are on their vacations. Walking home from evening Mass felt like a homecoming as many people were out enjoying the right and had warm smiles on their faces.

I'm very pleased with the way the music classes are coming out. I'm delighted that the students are having a blast and are doing their homework. I can tell this one Filipina is overjoyed to participate. She hadn't been allowed to attend Church before when she lived on the peninsula so it is a treat for her not just to attend Mass but to learn a valuable skill.

I always feel satisfied at the end of the weekend. It is very difficult to manage four separate parishes, the shelter, and the daily Mass group, but somehow it is coming together.
