From a reader:
My pastor uses the new translation of the Mass with the exception of the words “for many” at the consecration. He continues to use the words “for all.” I find that this bothers me. I would appreciate your opinion on this matter.
I suspect that, at this point, Father isn’t just slipping back into a habit, words that he was used to. He is doing this pointedly and purposely. He is doing this from defiance.
My suggestion is you ask your local bishop if Father obtained a special permission from him to continue to use a sacramental form (words of consecration) that differs from that approved by the Church.
Keep your letter extremely brief, without any angry words or accusations. Don’t instruct the bishop about the new translation. Just ask the question and request a response.
Send a copy of the letter to the Apostolic Nuncio. Make sure you indicate on the letter to your bishops that you are cc:’ing the Nuncio.
