Click the link. Now you're gonna think this every time....
It is actually not the “new” Gloria, but the old Gloria finally correctly translated after 40 years.
This is going right over my head. I don’t understand this at all. Is one of the people in the picture famous?
No, it is just a picture a people who work at the “Goodwill” store that the original poster is confusing with a reference in the Gloria of the Mass to people of good will.
Inside joke then?
Sorry. I thought I was really missing something.
No you are not missing anything. It is just that the original poster is not as witty as he thinks he is.
I thought this was about the cover from the ‘60s by Them.
Heeey.... not very charitable.
I probably resemble that remark, though I didn’t create the meme - just passing it on to any who might care.
Not quite correctly translated: the preVatII reads “men of good will” not “people.” Thank a feminist.
Who’s Gloria, and why does the website listed take you to a screen with no information? Totally confused.
We Catholics name prayers after the first word or phrase.
“Gloria” is, thus, the name of the prayer which begins, “Gloria, in excelsis deo,” or “Glory to God in the Highest.” It used to continue, “...and peace to his people on Earth.” But its been more accurately translated, “...and peace to people of good will.” That’s the joke. Those are the people of Goodwill.
I'm Catholic too, that's why I was wondering what this was all about.
Thanks for explaining it!
Gotta get to church more often ;^)
