I got it right, but strongly disagree that thy means your. They are two different words. Currently, "your" substituted "thy" in both spoken and written language, true, but if someone were to correctly use "thy", then that someone wouldn't use it as a synonym of "your". It's complicated in modern English, but it's basically like saying "his means her", for instance.

Jesus59 Church is actually misa.

Level 37
May 2, 2020
No, in Spanish 'misa' is the sermon, while the building is called 'iglesia'. In some languages derived from Spanish or Portuguese, the building IS referred to as Misa because no distinction is made between the two.

Actually, misa also refers to the Mass. So from the Catholic point-of-view "church" as in the service rather than the building itself could be translated as misa.

But in general, iglesia is definitely a more appropriate translation of church.

The mean is the average (the listed numbers added up, divided by the number of items on the list.) The median is the number that's in the middle when the list is ordered from smallest to largest.
