Quick Bytes #4: Overheard

Overheard at my church the other day:
"I hope this Mass isn't too long ... I really have to get home to get ready for the party ...."

Overheard in countries like India, Sudan, and Egypt the other day:
"I hope I don't get killed at Mass today."


  1. So true Michael. And in some places it may be "I wish we could have Mass today."
    Thanks for putting things in proper perspective.

  2. I agree with Karinann. We take our religious freedom for granted don't we!?!

  3. Wow, Michael that is a powerful quick byte. We, who have so much, do not appreciate that we can go to mass every week and even daily. We are so blessed and don't even know it.

  4. Thank you for the comments. I'm stopped in my tracks every time I read an article about the persecution that still exists today. It makes me pause and give thanks for all the basic religious things I take for granted.
