God Works in Mysterious Ways
St. Mark, the Evangelist
Last night I went to a Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy (and yes it is a Catholic Mass!) It was so powerful and so beautiful, I wish I could belong to an Eastern Rite Church. The reverence of the Eucharist, the reverence sung in chant, the reverence shown to the Theotokos touched my soul in a way I haven't experienced in a long time. The Byzantine Rite community here is very small and they only perform the Divine Liturgy once a month. It is about a 40 minute drive but I may go again some time. My love for the Eastern Tradition of our Church has renewed my love for our Sister Church. I had just written a post about the bad taste in my mouth after visiting a bigoted Orthodox Church the day before. God knew I needed to experience the Divine Liturgy for myself to appreciate our Eastern brothers and sisters. God really does work in myserious ways.
