I would love to hear from people who experience the trotting out everyone who knows a language besides English to read part of the first reading on Pentecost. I heard it twice at my parish because I went to both the Vigil and morning Mass with my choir. Driving away from church, I asked my wife, “Honey, do you think I’m stupid? Does someone need to draw me a picture of what happened on X day of salvation history? Do they need to light a bush on fire when Moses runs into God? Do I need to see Zacheus fall out of tree? I understand the concept of the miracle of the Apostles speaking in other languages.”
She laughed and said, “You’re not *that* stupid.”
