A National Catholic Reporter editorial bemoaned the new translation of the liturgy, saying it makes them feel sad. And CMR is all like boo-freakin’ hoo. But there was one paragraph where we couldn’t help but agree with the editorial. Wholeheartedly.

The Reporter editorial says:

Yet this Sunday, Nov. 27, the first Sunday in Advent, when we are gathered around the eucharistic table — what should be the greatest sign of our unity — many of us will feel depressed. We will feel like losers when we hear not the words that Jesus’ blood “will be shed for you and for all” but that Jesus’ blood “will be shed for you and for many.”

Finally! CMR and the National Catholic Reporter can agree on something.

It’s not so much we’re calling them “losers.” It’s more like we’re just agreeing with their self evaluation.
