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.

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.
