"A man without an umbrella is a fool." --- The Avengers

Tim, my brother in Christ, always carry an umbrella wherever he goes.
Even if it is quite obvious that it would not rain, he brings his trusty umbrella with him.
When I asked him about it, he simply said that "A man without an umbrella is a fool."

Today, I turned out to be that fool.
Water started falling from the sky come consecration time.
By the end of the mass, the rain was considerably pouring.
I found myself amidst a body of parishoners standing helpless by the door without hoping for the rain to stop.
At that moment I sincerely wished that I heeded Tim's advice.

Will I heed it hence? Let's see.
