“Writing an article about “Black Friday” at our parish. First Friday Adoration – not enough people sign up to sit with our Lord. A few of us fill in and make sure He is not alone.
“Few weeks later local paper shows people literally camping out in the cold outside of Wal-Mart. Four of us at morning Mass. How do people expect to make life’s journey without food for the road?
“Church survival is promised. No mention of size, if I recall. Maybe a small remnant.”
