The pews were full (although not as full as what we’re used to at St. Mary’s Catholic Church), but we noticed that most of them were from the older generations. And unlike in Dubai, the voices of the congregation weren’t as loud when singing the hymns. No biggie, though. That’s just something I noticed.
I can’t remember the priest’s name, but we enjoyed listening to his Homily. One of the messages he shared that struck me was this:
“When you start being grateful, that’s when miracles begin to happen.”
Because I noticed that when I started being thankful to God for every single thing that came my way (whether big or small), that’s when more blessings poured in and prayers were being answered. Sounds simple, huh? But amazingly, that’s all we need to do. We really just have to be grateful to Him.
