Our Lady of Lebanon Church + Maronite Rite, Miami

090201_lebanon-maronite-011Today we had Mass at Our Lady of Lebanon Catholic Church in Miami, of the Maronite Rite.  The liturgy was structured a bit differently.  My favorite part is the prayer of consecration said in the original Aramaic (that Jesus spoke) and Communion is distributed under both species, the Body dipped into the Blood and given on the tongue.

After Mass, we were warmly welcomed by the parishoners in their hall with lots to eat.  As visiting was a Rector of a seminary in Lebanon.  Since priest of the Maronite Rite can be married, we discussed some of the pros and cons with married vs celibate priests and dating in the seminary … among other things.
