There is an article over on Pray Tell (distinct from the one I pointed to on Saturday) that is well worth reading. Check it out.
Folks, it seems that the reception of the new English translation of The Roman Missal will make more and more people less and less happy.
I find it remarkable that people who respond to articles like this begin their scholarly comments with the word, "Wow."
And that's how this writer is feeling on this Monday morning with regard to the current state of affairs with this translation.
What, in heaven's name, is going on here? Trying to hold on to hope here, folks, but my grip gets more tenuous by the day. Please read the article I mention above and you'll see what I mean.
What is your take on all of this?
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
(You know, on a day like this, it's not too easy to type those last four words. But each time that I do, I am reminded that there is always something about which we can pray and sing. Some days, it's just tougher than others.)
