Welcome to this edition of "New Translation Tuesday."
One of my colleagues here at World Library Publications recently related a conversation she had with her Dad, a relatively new Catholic. The conversation was about the changes in the new English translation of The Roman Missal.
This man asked this question: "Do you think that God really cares about these ridiculous changes to the Mass?"
I would like to ask you, the faithful readers of Gotta Sing Gotta Pray: How would you address this man's question?
This is much of what we will face as the coming months unfold. I am already envisioning the conversations that will take place during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, when I will be spending time with my family, many of whom are practicing Catholics. And these conversations will be taking place in the Archdiocese of Boston, where the Church as a whole has suffered immeasurable damage from the fallout of the clergy sexual abuse crisis there.
What would you tell this man?
Gotta sing. Gotta Pray
