Today, my church held a special Mass with priests from 7 different Catholic rites concelebrating the Byzantine liturgy. It was so cool to be a part of. They brought in icons from a Byzantine Catholic church nearby and set them up in front of the altar. Their vestments were all different, and very beautiful; we stood the whole time and everything was chanted a cappella. We were also literally spoon-fed Communion by the priests! The whole celebration was a unique experience for me; it was different from the Latin rite, but still definitely a Catholic Mass! I'm really glad that the churches decided to organize this, and I hope they hold another one so that more Roman Catholics will attend and learn more about the universality of our Faith.
