Today the weekly Catholic Courier e-edition arrived in my inbox. As is normally the case, the e-mail featured approximately five news briefs with a little photograph next to each one. Below is a screenshot of a news brief concerning the revised English translation of the Roman Missal:
Does anybody else find it interesting that the Courier chose to display an image of St. Mary downtown, a parish that barely follows the current translation of the Roman Missal? St. Mary downtown, the parish that features inclusive language throughout the liturgy, use of the Apostle’s Creed instead of the Nicene, lay homilies, liturgical dance, laypeople standing around the altar during the consecration, and an assortment of other abuses not called for by the Missal. I mean, if there’s one image of a parish to display for this news story, isn’t St. Mary downtown the last one you would pick?
