Spanish, not Greek
The Episcopal Church still (I presume) teaches its ordinands Greek, and maybe some Hebrew, and even less likely, some Latin.
All a waste of time. Only a few scholars need these languages, and certainly not parish priests in America.
What the seminaries should be teaching is Spanish. Very soon, some states of America will be predominantly Spanish-speaking. And lots of these Spanish speakers are alienated from the Roman Church in which they were baptized south of the border. Lots of them are being evangelized by Pentecostal and other Protestant Churches.
But I am sure that many of them would like to find a Catholic Church that accepts the fact that they are divorced and remarried, or that they are gay, or that they are not 100% against abortion or contraception; or that they do not believe every word of the Bible. And here is the Episcopal Church, which fits every one of these criteria. But, sadly, the Mass and everything else is usually in English.
I wish I spoke Spanish fluently. If I did, I would advertise a Spanish Mass every Sunday or Saturday evening in St Clement’s. I could, of course, read a Mass in Spanish, but it needs to be more authentic than that. I could do it in Italian, French, or German, but that is not much needed in Center City, Philadelphia.
What is needed, all over America, is Episcopal priests who speak Spanish comfortably and can celebrate the Sacraments in that language. All our pious language about making the poor and needy our first priority could be translated into action with this simple remedy – MAKE EPISCOPAL PRIESTS SPEAK SPANISH!
Now, that is not going to bring in the Kingdom overnight, but it will get rid of the idiotic Greek, Hebrew and Latin that our priests remember for about three months after leaving seminary.
