I went to a Roman Catholic mass at 10:00 today to take my dear Grandma, and it was a bit lackluster (not that I like critiquing others' prayers). But there were three minstrels playing triple-guitars, doing folk renditions of Christmas carols. The church itself was old and gorgeous, but nothing about the service fit with the building. I saw statues of saints but felt like hippies had taken over the place, and the saints were kind of uncomfortably standing along the sides, a bit confused. The whole affair took about 40 minutes, and I left feeling very glad to be in the Orthodox Church.
