  • Tenango Otomi: “There where a house is being built to be a church, there the stone work is begun, there accompany many stones to make up the stone wall for the church of God. You are the stones which make up the wall of the church. Concerning Christ, he is the stone which began the wall. The ones who are his representatives and those who are spokesmen for God are the stones which first went to build the house. And now, because of Christ, the people who are not Jews now accompany all those who believe in Christ. Because with all of us the Holy Spirit now walks.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
