Wow! Only 12 people, oh well! For those two people who didn't know what I'm talking about, a "bi-lingual Mass" is a Mass where the priest attempts to combine two different languages into the service (e.g. Spanish and English) so as to minister to the different ethnic communities present.

I remember the longest Masses where the English/Spanish Masses on special occasions at our parish (growing up).

Hey, thanks for visiting my blog! Your congratulations were really, really happy for me to see. How exciting! I haven't been by your blog in a while either.

And about the bilingual masses -- I do not prefer them.

I do not prefer them either. I speak fluent Spanish and have found that many bi-lingual English / Spanish masses feature broken, though well intentioned Spanish.

On other occasions, it appeared that the Spanish was completely unecessary and was used only for political correctness.
