Today is Sunday. It’s Church day! Mom, Dad and I go to church on Sundays. We go to St. Mary’s Church in Al Ain.
Yup, there’s a Catholic Church in this Muslim country. UAE allows Christians to practice their religion here. As a matter of fact, a new church building is being constructed and it will be as big as the other mosques around the town. That is one nice thing about this country.
In Saudi Arabia, the practice of Christianity is not allowed, and is even prohibited. Christians are not allowed to bring bibles, rosaries, crosses or anything related to the religion. Christians are sent to jail when they are found to be practicing the religion. And there is no Catholic Church in there.
I am glad we are here in a country where people are free to choose their faith.
The shots above were taken just before we left this afternoon to hear holy mass in the church.
Hmmm… What should I write today?
