Today was a good Sunday, I thought. A trip to San Juan Capistrano for the early Latin Mass, my first one and a breakfast at IHop afterwards. But of course, if the day was just that simple, I wouldn’t be blogging right? So something must have happen that landed me here on my laptop typing while Alyssa is sleeping…

Going back to the church as it was the highlight of the day. It was one beautiful old church, and they still do Latin Mass, which I honestly DON’T understand at all! I spend my time browsing thorugh the misalette in hopes of at least catching one single phrase so I can go with the flow of the mass, but of course that didn’t happen. And where’s Alyssa? Rolly had to take her out because she started mumbling and making baby noises that echoes around. So I sat there with Ate Myla. Ate Lynne, TJ, Tatay and Racquel on the other hand were two rows in front of us…

So after sitting there just wondering and looking around since I don’t have any idea at all what the Priest was sermoning about, finally came the offering and I didn’t have a single bill with me. I left Alyssa’s bag and my purse in the car. And of course (again) Rolly missed it too… so that made me feel bad. Then came the Communion so I called Rolly and Alyssa outside to join us. We all all stood and lined up… Rolly and Alyssa, then me and Ate Myla. As we approached the front where the priest was standing, one of the older men that assist parishioners came to me and said to cover up, signaling my blouse and my skirt. I was so embarassed and I just smiled, I actually wanted to frown. Ate Myla looked at me, I know she wanted to laugh. They still gave me the “bread” of course, but I was just smiling. I didn’t think what I was wearing was too revealing… I know this morning when I woke up that I am going to church so there is no mistake that I picked my outfit for the day.

So when the mass was finally over they made fun around what happened, of course to my expense. But I will still go back to the Mission pretty soon. It is a really nice, quiet church… but since it is almost winter time so when the next time I will be there, I will be bundled up for sure.
