We went to Mass today and could not understand a word! It was all in French.

We are celebrating Mass with a church FULL of French-speaking Africans with a white French bishop with an Italian parish priest in a church built by Italians in the heart of Istanbul which is 99.9% Muslim. We are all loyal to the Argentinean Pope on the Chair of Jewish Peter in Rome.

Yet, we had the same Mass and the same readings as you! It was the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord. We followed along with the iMissal on our iPhones. We were home. This was OUR church! The Lord is present in the Eucharist. This is our universal Catholic Church.

We love being Catholic!
