Religious Participation

Something I thought was very interesting--Sunday evening, when we went to the chamber music concert, we arrived about ten minutes early. The Church was completely full, standing room only, and hot, despite the soaring ceilings.

We walked in, thinking we were going to have to stand. Then we realized that a priest was saying mass. As soon as he was done, the crowd left. The crowd for the concert was about 20% as large as the mass crowd.
