The Ishinomaki priest celebrated Mass yesterday morning and he talked about you during his homily!
Firstly he had rejected having a female guest over as he was living alone, and it might not be good. It was also too late at night to call other parishioners to host a guest. However when he mentioned this to his parishioners the next day, all of them told him to accept the guest! So he did.
He said initially he was skeptical about the walk, how could it be a form of evangelisation?
He even thought, "ahh, my well-ordered life would be disturbed for the day."

As he heard your stories (monkeys, being held at gunpoint, having people ask for prayers), he realised the significance of the walk, the significance for evangelisation and he was converted. It was a good homily ^^

Held at gunpoint? Have I missed something? This was on a different pilgrimage?
