On bad translations and bad worship

| | Comments (1)


The suggested translations do sound beautiful.
I was never a Catholic during Latin mass days and was an Anglican at the deathbed days of the old book of common prayer. So I am pretty used to the new words. The music though, never...it is so vapid. Even "trivialized" as the words may seem to those who were used to the older versions, the meaning of the words is amazing, astounding, overwhelming, stunning...and they still move me. But by all means, let us make them more felicitous and more like the Latin...or closer to the BCP. (Except,can't they, please, put the invocation of the Holy Spirit before the consecration, so they don't ask that "these gifts of bread and wine" be transformed, after the words of consecration have been said.)

Regular attender of both RC and Episcopalian liturgies.
