Snake in the church

Not an everyday sight in Margao let alone Marlow, but on her way to work this morning Alison’s progress was halted while a snake was carried from the Holy Spirit Church across the main road. We guess the sixfooter had gone to confession or mass and scared off other worshippers, so he had to leave. Forgive him/her his/her trespasses.
The churches here are well patronised. The morning six o’clock mass on Sundays at one of our local churches is packed with the faithful overspilling into the street. We know this because we go for an early morning run on the beach Sunday mornings.
As we start to travel further afield in Goa we discover more and more churches. When we start not seeing churches we will know that we are in Indian territory (rather than Portugese). Apparently there is a noticeable geographical division between Catholic and Hindu Goa. We’ll let you know.
