I have a conservative Christian friend who is currently teaching English at a secondary school in Korea. Last Sunday, he went to one of the conservative Christian megachurches in Seoul and came back complaining that he couldn’t understand a thing. “All they did all day was blare praise and worship music out of these giant speakers,” he said. As a foreigner, naturally, he was lost.
He called to tell me that he was thinking about finding a Catholic Mass, “At least then, with the liturgy, I might have some idea what is going on,” he said.
