I was happy to talk to Bill this afternoon for over an hour. He didn't get to Mass today. He's not on American soil, and this morning he wasn't on an American installation of any kind.
In fact, at 4 am, the loudspeaker outside his room blares prayers in a foreign language.
He's coming home soon.
My brother-in-law in Iraq gets to attend Mass every other Wednesday. He's been entrusted with the Host, so they can have a Communion Service on Sundays.
I don't care how you spend your Sundays, but thank God you have a choice.
