St Mary Magdelene – Sunny Isles, FL

When did the Catholic Church go from “He gives the spirit without measure” to “He gives the spirit one cracker at a time”?

My experience at the church of St Mary Magdelene in Sunny Isles Florida began with an early arrival to the Spanish mass. This one took place around noon after the two in English had already been completed. Since I understand enough Spanish to follow along, I decided to give this service a go. I expected that the language barrier would cause me to be more attentive to the context, the setting, and the feeling of the church experience.
