Yesterday was the feast of Christ the King, so mass was crowded...we left before the procession (which the kids love, which is why mass was crowded...)
In the US, the kids are kept in the "crying room" but here, the babies are usually quiet (rare to hear one crying). Of course, the restless kids do tend to prance quietly up the aisles before they are grabbed by mom or an older sibling and taken outside to play. We don't have Aircon in church here, only fans mounted on the walls, but all the doors are kept open.
So that means the bugs and birds (and sometimes the dogs) wander in and out too.
as the bible says:
Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young--a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
so watch your head...
That part in the bible about the birds finding nests in your altars? yup...watch your head.
