Let’s have a poll.
But first, the Church’s liturgical law is not ambiguous: only males can be chosen for this, and they should be men: viri selecti. Virmeans “man” and cannot, cannot – period – mean a female.
NB: I am not trying to be speciesist. The Roman Rite still limits this to human beings.
Furthermore, despite what Facebook proposes (there are 57 “genders”) the race is still limited to two sexes. Therefore, I edited one of the answer options from “and only males and females were chosen” to “and males and females were chosen”. Please know that I am trying to overcome my speciesist tendencies.
So, what happened where you went to Holy Thursday’s Mass, assuming, of course, that you went. Otherwise, if you did not go, perhaps you know what happened by word of mouth or by reading the bulletin, etc.
Chose your best answer and add a comment in the combox, below.
