NLM has done an excellent job of sifting through the lengthy text to extract points of interest for their readers. I believe many catholics in this forum share that interest.

("Before I formed you in the womb I knew you." --Jeremiah 1:5)
he asked - who can honestly say they understand the texts of Scripture, simply because they are in their own language?
Point well taken. Understanding the Word of God not only involves reading the text, but internalizing it and asking the Holy Spirit to use it to guide your spiritual growth so that you may fully understand.
However, if you throw a Bible at me written in Swahili we aren't even going to get to Step 1. It's like trying to start a fire without matches or flint. This is at the heart of the problem I have with the New Roman Missal.
I’m not sure I’d recognize the “true council” if it fell out of the sky with a great bang and hit me on the head.

I grew up in the Latin Mass, loved it...hated the NEW Mass but in time I learned to love it and I understood why they made SOME f the changes they did....more people could PARTICIPATE. There are so many more Catholics nw, it would take a LONG LONG time to receive Holy Communion kneeling down.
Went to Latin Masses in Seattle a few years ago, and they took about 1 1/2 hours, mostly because of how long it took for Holy Communion to be distributed. I didn’t like the Priest’s back anymore....I do like the altar change very much. Don’t like the sign of peace all that much, don’t like the nuns wearing regular clothes, don’t like the guitar music when played, but everything else is GREAT!!!!
