During the weekend, I missed the English mass at 9am. Yet I was too early for the one in Tagalog which is before 12 noon that I joined the children’s mass. (If you are new in Abu Dhabi, mass in different languages are celebrated in St. Joseph Church in Kaniza area.) I felt a little out of place in the beginning, i.e. like attending a class for pupils wherein I should be with college batchmates. I never thought it would be that awakening.
