Praytell, the greatest agitator for a return to the liturgy wars has this little ditty from Michael Joncas on their blog today, which you can read here.
This is but one terroristic threat from his article:
“The 2010 Missal relentlessly pursues…the unctuous or fulsome paths of [Byzantine and Roman] courts, with ‘graciously’ incessantly introducing prayers: ‘graciously grant,’ ‘graciously accept,’ ‘graciously choose,’ and so forth. ‘We pray’ is likewise regularly inserted….” (39)
At the very same Praytell site, there is this news revealed that Cardinal Muller, and for very good reason, as noted in the above quote and the agitation that progressive liturgists are even now bringing to the table of retranslations:
Cardinal Muller Goes Against Pope’s Magnum PrincipiumThe former prefect of the CDF Cardinal Muller has voiced reservations about Pope Francis’ Magnum principium, which gave national Bishops’ Conferences more freedom in translating liturgical texts.
Translated from Passauer Neue Presse:
Muller expresses reserve about giving bishops’ conferences more freedom in the translation of liturgical texts. The Cardinal says the liturgy should unite and not divide. “The last authority in cases of doubt cannot lie with bishops’ conferences.” Otherwise one could fear that the unity of the Catholic Church in faith, confession, and prayer would be destroyed. . . . The cardinal referred to experiences where bishops have brought in translators who watered down Biblical and other texts under the pretext of better comprehension.DUH! DO YOU THINK?
