    I love the pictures and the sentiments, however, the Orthodox celebrate the “Divine Liturgy” never, ever mass (this is the Roman Custom). And there is very little about it, any more, that even looks like the Divine Liturgy of either John Chrysostom or of St. Basil. If we are Orthodox then let us be Orthodox.
