Quick Bytes: Where are the other nine(ty)?

I couldn't help but feel like today's Gospel was being re-enacted right in front of me today.  

From my Church's half-filled parking lot, to the empty pews during Mass, I could feel Jesus looking around, asking "what happened to the other nine(ty)?"  

The Lord gives so many gifts to us ... please pray that more people act like the Samaritan in today's Gospel and come back to praise Him.

God Bless you.

Funny ... I was thinking just the same today in church. The church was full(ish) but not as full as when we have a Baptism, or at Christmas or Easter. Some pews were half-empty. It's sad. Some days we don't even have Altar servers at Mass.

We always have the choir though. If you ever want to hear out of tune singing come to our church.

God bless you, Michael.

Yes, we all need to be thankful. I think I must thank the Lord almost every day.

Victor/Manny - thank you both for stopping by and for your comments. I am blessed that you visit my corner of the interworld.

God Bless you.

P.S. Victor, thank you for the invitation, but if I want to hear out of tune singing, I can just record myself :)
