When was the last time you heard the word Sacrifice or Sacrifice of the Mass from the Ambo nowadays?
I don’t know if its that I live in a relatively medium to small Catholic community in my city and Archdiocese with a French and English deanery.
Or is it that political correctness has infiltrated many aspects in choosing words in the Mass.
For instance the phrase or term Sacrifice of the Mass is rarely heard today amongst Catholics.
The Altar of the Lord has been replaced for the term “Table of the Lord”
The Body and Blood of Christ has been replaced for the term “Communal Meal”
Am I being overly nit-picky over this? Political Correctness has never been my forte.
I know I shouldn’t get irked over this, but occasionally it creeps under my skin.
Maybe I should be silent about it and just offer it up to the Lord.
Perhaps we Catholics are called more and more to be humbly passive or is it that I’m too old school?
