Praise God! I'll be in Allentown, PA over the 4th of July weekend, and one of my growing desires will be satisfied (or temporarily quenched) on Saturday evening. I will be attending Vespers and the Divine Liturgy at St. Michael's Byzantine Catholic Church at 5:00pm that night. I've invited my family members to come along too, if any are interested.
Update: ooh, maybe I'll go Thursday and/or Friday mornings too, as preparation, and to introduce myself to the pastor. And just in case something goes awry on Saturday and I can't make it.
I am thrilled that I will finally be able to experience a Catholic Divine Liturgy. Ever since I attended an Orthodox Divine Liturgy (last year!) and attended their Vespers services a couple times since then (including this evening), I have strongly yearned for the "best of both worlds", as it were: an Eastern Christian liturgy at which I could receive Holy Communion, where the priest and faithful are in Communion with the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.
Please pray for me (and anyone who comes with me), that I might worship God fittingly and properly, and receive many graces from it. Please also pray for that parish, for its priests and deacons and faithful.
