seconded. also, the reinsertion of “mea culpa” FREAKS ME THE HELL OUT. “my fault, my fault, my most grievous fault” WHY IS THAT NECESSARY. THANKS, CATHOLIC CHURCH, FOR GIVING ME FREAKY HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME/SWEENEY TODD FLASHBACKS.
Oh shit are you serious?
I’m gonna be totally honest here: I actually have only been to church once since the change (fuck yeah), so all I know of the changes is what the folks and Julia have told me, and they’ve mostly focused on the awkwardness of some of the language and the “and with your spirit” part. But that is actually really disturbing.
Wow, I am absolutely in awe, because the post itself is incredibly well-phrased, and the tags are explosively passionate.
i just have a lot of feelings about the catholic church
(they aren’t good feelings)
I second your opinion that this superficial change reflects something much deeper that has taken root in the minds of the Catholic Church leaders. Tbh, I’m growing concerned that there’ll be another form of ye olde witch hunts soon.
