I took part Sunday in the Orthodox Easter mass at a Greek Orator church. I was pleasantly surprised to listen to the scriptures in more than 30 languages. As you can imagine it took a while to recite all of them and a lot of effort for the priests to pronounce the words in all these languages.
To me the mass was powerful. However the participants at the liturgy had various responses to this experiment. While most of them stayed until the end of the mass, some left in the first few minutes, and others left after hearing the scriptures in their own language.
I believe that in these times of change and evolution it is very important to accept the diversity in America as a gift of strength and “to create unity in diversity”.
America is beautiful and the proud mother of many daughters and sons. I love her and I am always grateful to her.
