“My mates were ordained. They’re from Vietnam and after their Thanksgiving Mass, one invited me to attend the other ceremony they were having in Vietnamese, with the Vietnamese congregation. I was hesitant, barely knowing anyone else except them, but I went along anyway. When I got to the church, it was spilling out. People were sitting/standing outside as the sun went down. The entire Mass was in Vietnamese, but it really stuck out for me that in every language, ‘Amen’ is the same.”
