I'm sure my first words were probably
some kind of blasphemy, but I couldn't believe it when I saw there was
a mass going on in the cathedral. I mean, I know it is a Catholic church,
and I know they have masses, but I just never considered that there would
be one taking place while I was there. Some of the people visiting obviously
felt the same way - I saw quite a number of people crying (I'm assuming
out of the joy of being there).
Now one of the interesting things was that
they were using incense, which I had always associated with the Orthodox
churches. But you can see it billowing out there pretty clearly.
