The Christmas calendars were out in the vestibule for churchgoers to take home. On one table were the calendars in English. Another table had calendars in Spanish.
I just shook my head.
Near the end of Mass, I opened one of the front doors so people could exit easily. A car pulled up and a Hispanic woman got out with the car running.
She saw me and quickly yelled out, asking about the Mass.
“Which Mass is this, English or Spanish?”
“English. The Spanish Mass is at noon.”
“What time did this Mass start?”
She seemed happy to hear that.
“But it’s ending in just a few minutes.”
She didn’t like that news.
“When is the next Mass?”
“But is that in English?”
“No,” I informed her. “It’s in Spanish.”
She shook her head in complete disinterest, even more so when I told her there was no other Mass in English today.
The Hispanic woman, unable to find her Mass in English, shrugged her shoulders and left.
Good for her, I thought, and smiled.
