The Opening Prayer or 'Collect', as it is now called in the new Missal, in yesterday's Mass was almost unintelligible.
It's worth counting the number of words in the opening sentence.
How many people at Mass yesterday understood that prayer, no matter how well it was read and prayed?
Can the people who gave the English-speaking Catholic Church the new Missal be held responsible for this disaster?
Is there an Irish bishop who is honest and intelligent enough to stand up and say it is a failure?
Well done to the German bishops for 'postponing' a new translation.
How much did it all cost and who paid for it? Not a word from a bishop or a provincial.
