Just a quick post as I’m tired.
It’s been a long day, and I’m just about ready to crash.
But before I do that...
Today started extremely early. I wanted to catch Mass before heading to the office. Since there are only a few Catholic churches in Tokyo, I had to choose one that’s not too far from my house and close to the head office.
Luckily, or maybe it was God working his ways, I found a Catholic church a few stations away from the head office.
The website said that 12NN was the English Mass. That meant that the 7AM Mass was going to be said in Japanese.
I actually didn’t mind. It’s good exposure to hearing the Japanese language and more importantly, the Mass follows a certain “formula.” As such, I do know what is happening.
As for the Mass readings, well, thankfully there were English missals placed on the pew so I still understood what the readings were.
The church was beautiful. I thought that since the Mass was an early 7AM, there would only be a handful of people. I was wrong and I was happy that I was wrong.
Close to 8AM, people started to enter the church and head for the pews. The church wasn’t packed but it wasn’t almost empty as well. I would say that there was good attendance - yay!
After the Mass, I had just enough time to get breakkie before starting work.
Next week, I can actually go to a later Mass since I don’t have work on Sundays. Yay!
