Some bishops and priests need to grow up -- my opinion.

If, we in the pews are happy, what's to be gained by all this needless discussion.

Bite the bullet and do it! Then thank God, because you will notice a change in yourselves, dear priests.

It's all gnat droppings in pepper.
The crux of the Mass is the Transubstantiation. We have the privelege of taking in the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus. Who cares if there is an extra word or two and we say "and with your spirit" instead of "and also with you"???

People are fixating on the WRONG THING. I wish people would just let it go. It's like the tax people who change the rules, regulations and forms for paying taxes. I just send the papers to the accountant, pay the taxes and get on with it.
Bells and whistles.

Now, aren't you glad you asked? :o):o)

I noticed the word “consubstantial” last Sunday and was puzzled. Surely this is not an everyday English word. Surely, for something this significant, every word was chosen, discussed and agreed upon before publication.

My mother disagrees. She thinks that the Missal is meant to elevate our vocabulary and words like these are welcome. I love her dearly but disagree.

The worst thing about turning the altar around is that we now get to see the priest’s face, all the time. At first I thought it a good idea. The priest could share with us all what was going on. But it soon the priest became the “star”of the drama. Less about HIM, than him. So like any actor, he couldn’t resist interpreting his role. Deadly if he lacks a compelling personality. Dangerous if he does.

I am very thankful that my parish priest has a wonderful sense of humor in regards to the recent English changes. When last Sunday when he did the monthly children’s mass and was asking the kids questions, he said that he needs a person who knows a little theology. LOL :)=^..^=

I think most of the disciples would have said “cup” rather than “chalice.” Especially the one on whom the Church was built.
Pretty sure Jesus would not have cared then and does not now, what you call it, as long as you get the ox out of the ditch.

The real problem is that many of the priests simply cannot read properly. The lectors when trained properly know how to read to the congregation quite well. It is the priests who have essentially memorized it all and now find themselves having to read the new translation to the congregation. They should have been reading it over quite a few times in advance of the change being made. Instead, they stand there in front of the congregation and demonstrate their inability to read out loud from a large print book. Some of these priests come across as first grade children reading from a Dick and Jane reader.

As far as this new translatio­n of the phony 1969 mass, its only been done because everyone is waking up to the fact that we have had a fake mass for the last 40 years or so. Changing a few words is just their way of dealing with the catholic counter-re­volution. If they were serious they would just bring back Old Roman Rite that worked just fine for the better part of the last 2000 years. Why would the pope change a mass that had been used for for nearly 2000 years? Because Pope Paul VI was an infiltrato­r, an impostor, as was his predecesso­r John XXIII. Who was the lawful (though unrecogniz­ed) pope during this time? Why it was Cardinal Siri of Genoa who was elected on October 26th, 1958 when the white smoke billowed out of the Sistine Chapel for 5 minutes but was forced aside before he could appear on the balcony in St. Peter’s square.
