Christmas Alone with God

December 26, 2013

It is hard to feel the solemnity of Christmas in China.. especially here, in rural China, but I should still praise God for his great blessing for me since I can still have a vigil mass and accomplish my holy day of obligation, though the mass itself is really sloppy.
