After having had many weeks of continuous rains it is hard to believe that for 6 weeks or so a very hot, dry spell continues to turn fields brown, including rice fields that once looked like little ponds. As I am writing, some clouds have moved in and the 88 degree temperature in the office seems more tolerable. We continue to pray for rain daily but I have been disappointed that the number of people at daily Mass has not increased. Seems that the worse the dry spell gets the less people we have in church. I suspect that I might just be talking about “faith” “trust” “prayer” etc. tomorrow at Sunday Mass!
