The open air masses are incredible, with the joy and enthusiasm of people from all over the world, chatting in their native language.
The way of the cross at the Colosseum is also overwhelming.
Ok, ok, it is nice, but sometimes it could be too many people in the Basilica and you prefer going to one of the many Cathedrals...
My church does the Stations in English and Spanish every week since we have such a mixture of the two languages. The responses of the people in the two languages can seem like cacophonous at times.
Some of the people don’t mind the two together and some don’t like it wishing that we could hold separate services for each language.
I am one who really likes the bi-lingual because it I think of the Tower of Babel when language became a barrier to people wishing to exalt themselves rather than God.
But, when we are together in this prayer, though our languages are different, we are in fact speaking in one voice our love of Jesus. There is no barrier because of the languages, in fact we are united in the way Christ wished us to be.
