Yesterday the Lovely Mona and I were at Parroquia San Pablo, helping celebrate their Patronal Festival, and the 43rd anniversary of the present building. The good folks at St. Paul's had called me just before I left for Bocas del Toro and reminded me that the service would be in Español. I misunderstood and thought that both services would be in Español, so I only brought along my sermon text en Español. Well, the first service is in English, ALWAYS in English, so I had to translate the sermon back into English while preaching, which was an interesting exercise!
After la Misa a las 9:00 am we all celebrated with a lunch of Arroz con pollo and macaroni salad. It was all very nice.
7:00 am English-language Eucharist

And now. . . the Celebration!
