If I miss the English Mass, do I have to go to Mass in another language?

My parish offers two Masses: and early one in English and a later one in Spanish. If I miss the English Mass, am I obligated to go to the Spanish Mass? Spanish isn’t the language that I worship God in. :confused:

If you were to attend Mass in a language you do not understand you would still fulfill your Mass obligation. After all, for centuries Catholics attended the Latin Mass and most did not have a proficient knowledge of the language.

Even with the language barrier you would still know approximately what kind of prayers are being said at different points and you would know when the consecration takes place. You would also at least be able to pray, worship, and receive communion.
