Even at a church…

I like to go to week day mass and if I miss it I like to have a quiet moment to pray. So I go to St Mary’s and trying am trying pray. It is sort of deserted except for a couple of people moving about + two creepy ( I presume to be homeless because of their hygiene) guys who are lurking. This isn’t abnormal for a city parish. Anyways -The one who isn’t in a wheel chair comes up and offers to “tighten me up” and give me what I need… wtf … I can’t even have a moment a solitude in church??? I felt threatened. I told him to back the fuck up or I would mace him and quickly left.
