The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops votes on the new English Mass today. Hopefully it passes. The current translation is very clumsy and untrue to the original Latin. For example, how does, “And with thy spirit,” become, “And also with you.”
Some bishops think like Fr. Thomas Reese, the former editor of America, who whines that the changes will cause chaos. It is remarkable, though typical, that liberals are really the most conservative group around. Once they secure they change they like, they’re absolutely unwilling to imagine an improvement. Reese and those who oppose changes value continuity over truth.
Fortunately, Cardinal Arinze has already informed the bishops that this faulty reasoning is insufficient justification for rejecting the new translation.
