New Mass Translation: Update
Gerald has a couple of updates regarding the new Mass translation at the Cafeteria here and here. Unsurprisingly, the AP has commissioned a quote from a rogue priest to make it seem as though all are opposed to this. Must the Jesuits fight everything, regardless of whether it impacts them directly? They're quickly devolving from a well respected order with a focus on higher learning to a reactionary group who opposes all Vatican intiatives. From his perspective (which I share):
It's predictably awful, as, I am sure, you expected. You know an article is screwy when the ubiquitous malcontent Fr. Thomas Reese, SJ, is quoted in it. That arrogant man, who gave a talk at MahonyFest entitled "A Survivor's Guide for Thinking Catholics", is all over the place complaining about the new translation, pretending to speak for all priests. He's really a rather unpleasant character, then again, that's why he's the go-to-guy for liberal journalists.
They've also added a fantastic new overview of each day's posts at the top of the page. Check it out!
