Sunday, Sunday, Sunday

Not as spiffy as at Arifjan. For one thing, I have to go to work. Yes kids, I am now on the standard Deployed Army 7-day Workweek. But I got on the 'puter as you all know and MAJ T and I got to Mass. I checked in as a Eucharistic Minister and will be on the schedule as of December.

Mass here is a lot better than at AJ. Fr. Pat is Air Force and seems to be everything you'd want in your parish priest: warm, energetic, friendly and a decent speaker. The music was good, whereas at AJ it was horrid to the point of painful. The chapel actually looks like a chapel and the Blessed Sacrament chapel behind the building is gorgeous, with marble tiles, classic-looking Stations, and good liturgical art. I thought it would be odd bringing my rifle, who has informed me her name is Gretchen, to church but they have a gun rack at the back. I don't think she's Catholic anyway.

I think that's about it for now. I do read the f-list but generally don't comment for lack of time. Off to work with me.

Yup, definite Lutheran vibe from Gretchen, but I'm not taking her to church at 0830 on Sunday.

I love Jesus!

I was asking daddy if you can love Jesus there, and I'm glad you can.

If you love Jesus really hard, maybe he'll bring cats to show that if you love Jesus, good things happen.

It's sad there are no cats there.

If ever you run into an Navy chaplain and a Dominican named Fr. Steven, say hi. He's a great guy, and was at my parish for awhile. one Mass I was serving at with him was a complete clusterfuck. I apologized for it (none of the things that went wrong were our fault), and his response was, "That's the ministry of liturgy." Great guy.

I sing, and boy can I relate to painfully bad church music. Glad you're liking the new church.
