... just tempoarily shifting the series to a more appropriate theme.
I don't bring cameras to mass, but I always carry my cellphone -- and took this shot shortly before the mass started. I'm getting tired, I did not resize this photo, just uploaded this straight from the phone.
I haven't seen this church for quite some time now -- and at night. I heard mass today on my way to Tagaytay City, and was amazed a bit on how much the church has changed. The people -- very much the same for the dawn mass. I think much discipline is needed these days for most teenagers. This is a 4AM mass. Out in the grounds, teenagers gather in groups, saying explicit words, smoking, making noise. I think the catholic church somehow needs to somehow put a stop on this.
But anyway... its just something that perhaps needs to change.
