We often hear about the death or at least significant decline of Christianity in Western Europe. On a recent business trip To Switzerland I spent some time in the town of Zug. Outwardly at least, signs of the faith were still very much in evidence.
There were two Catholic churches in town that were still active and quote close to each other. I attended Mass at St. Oswald's.
The Mass was conducted in Swiss. While I enjoy the experience of hearing the Mass in another language and understanding the meaning of what is being said even if I don't understand the words themselves, I couldn't help but pine for the good ol' days when Latin would be used in all locales. There's something to be said for the universal Church having a universal language.
Just up the hill from St. Oswald's (and starting at the lake everything in Zug is up the hill from something) was St. Michael's.
