Some thoughts on the Armenian Orthodox
#1
I was doing a little research on the sacrament of penance in the Armenian Orthodox Church and came across this article:

I read past the section about their version of confession and certain points struck me, specifically sections 8, 9, and 11, concerning the singing of the liturgy, the value of repetition, and their pride in using Classical Armenian, rather than Modern Armenian or another vernacular language in the liturgy. Comparing this with the attitude of many Catholics today shows a stark contrast, especially since many of those Catholics applaud these things in other faith traditions while shunning them in their own. I don’t have much else to add. I wish the Church as a whole would take a lesson from the Armenian playbook, and, you know, what VII actually said about the liturgy. I wonder if the Armenian Catholic Church is similar in outlook (I’m not thinking of switching rites, just curious).
