Mass in Santiago, Chile Today

I’m working in South America this week. Our Chilean distributer is having some technical issues with one of our products that could not be resolved via conference calls. I had to leave Saturday afternoon, fly through the night and I arrived today mid-morning; this left me little time for Mass.

After I settled into my hotel, I quickly searched “Catholic Churches near me” and behold…a beautiful little parish called Santos Angeles Custodios (or Holy Guardian Angel) was about a 10 min walk from the hotel, so I caught the last half of the last Mass of the day. The walk is extra nice since it’s summer here (88F, sunny and dry)!

This is as I walked up..

Inside…

What makes this more interesting is that a colleague of mine, who was supposed to be traveling with me, did not make it. There were multiple car robberies in his neighborhood Friday night and his passport was stolen out of his car, but the police caught the suspects and recovered some items, although no one knew exactly what items. After I went to Mass and said few prayers to St Anthony, I received a text from my co-worker that his passport was recovered and he will try to join me tomorrow if he can catch tonight’s flight.

You gotta just love a universal Church which is all over this world and has Saints all through the heavens!!!

Please pray for our safe travels…

  1. UPDATE: My colleague made his flight last night and should arrive later this morning. It’s hard flying through the night and then going straight to work, but he’s a tough hombre.
    God is good…all the time.
