Fr Norris reflection on fool for Christ

"We think it is a bit odd that no one met us. There is nothing for it but to leave the ship and fend for themselves. We know that Jim Doyle plays somewhere in Tokyo and thought we had better respond to him to determine what we were supposed to do. To keep the toolbar, we started to walk into the city. The streets have been deleted but the bombed buildings were in evidence everywhere. We are accosted and asked for a G.I. directions to the American camps. He kindly drove us in his jeep. "

Here Fr Norris to Japan after the end of WWII. Like all missions, you have to be prepared for the mistakes and bad planning. You can bet that things will go wrong.
