The National Schismatic Reporter informs us that, just about the same time the wonderful conference Sacra Liturgia 2013 was going on in Rome, the Ass. of U.S. Catholic Priests met in Seattle. Sort of like bearded-Spock doing his thing in that strange parallel dimension.
The Ass. of U.S. Catholic Priests gave an award to the former Erie Bishop and inveterate foe of the new, corrected translation, His Excellency Most Rev. Donald W. Trautman.
In his address to the Ass. of U.S. Catholic Priests, Bp. Trautman (here’s a surprise) ran down the new, corrected translation!
According to Fishwrap (aka the National Schismatic Reporter):
U.S. Catholic bishops “must take to heart” that the “vast majority” of U.S. priests are “extremely dissatisfied” with the current translation of the Roman missal, says the bishop who was responsible for the nation’s liturgy policies for six years.
Setting aside the specious claims about “vast majority” and “extremely dissatisfied”, I have two points.
First: Priests are dissatisfied? So what. Say the black and do the red.
Second: Fathers, if you are so unhappy, I say “REBEL!” Rise up against your oppressive overlords in the CDW and ICEL. Refuse to use the new translation, I say! Set aside the English book and just use Latin.
