It's two-thirty here. Today being the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe we had a vigil Mass; preceded by a procession and ending with menudo and other stuff.I'm gonna call it a night, or early morning, chat later with you guys.
Have a warm night!
The procession was led by a group of native American dancers, followed by the statue of La Guadalupana and another group of native dancers and then Padre leading the congregation in a Rosary. That took a bit over an hour and a half then we had a Sunday Mass but with only one reading. After Mass, our resident Mariachis the chorus and a visiting brass band took turns leading the congregation in song. Of course you can't here the people with a brass band in that little church but they played OK.
Then we went to the annex for menudo and other stuff. Of course there weren't any chairs because they were all at the church on account of we were packed like sardines and it was too cold to go get them.
That's about it. I had the sense to bring a bunch of flashlights which came in real handy and a spotlight for the Virgin and extra gloves for the people.
Why, you may ask, didn't everyone have the sense to bring gloves and a flashlight? I can only guess that not everyone has commuted to work in the middle of the night in January on a bicycle.
