    ... that the Pope publishes in Latin?

    So the terms you have a beef with are the product of your local translator?

    •  No, not at all! (0+ / 0-)

      There was a huge (English language) commission that just finished its work and reversed much of the translation of Vatican II. The pitch is that the laity need "humble obedience." This isn't the Pope's doing at all. (Been to a Catholic church in the last 2 months?)

      •  It didn't actually reverse the language (0+ / 0-)

        It just made the English language versions consistent with what the rest of the world has been doing since Vatican II.  I did like the English version much better, though, and think the whole thing has a lot more to do with efforts of some in the Catholic Church, as occurs as well in other faiths, to lead through control rather than service than anything else.
