Today is Good Friday. Yesterday was Maundy Thursday. And in most predominantly Catholic countries, both days are holidays. But in Korea, both holidays are not observed.
So, today, even though I was too busy at work, I, as a Catholic, made sure I was able to observe Lent.
So, with my umbrella, I walked under the April showers through Myeong-dong to visit the Myeongdong Cathedral and joined a few Catholics who showed a semblance of their observance of the Holy Week. Some sitting quietly in prayer; some doing their Via Crucis (Way of The Cross).
After moments of prayer and I left the Cathedral, with the skies clearing up.
And on my way down, dropped a couple of paper bills to help out a man sitting under the cold weather, wet and waiting for passers-by to fill his box. And on the other side, I spotted a few tourists taking souvenir photos of the Cathedral.
A few wet steps to church. A few quiet moments inside. And a prayer.
It was a Good Friday...
