About a year ago, our parish had a priest assigned there as a result of one priest leaving to teach at a seminary. My family and I don’t get him as the celebrant each week, but when we have, I’ve noticed something and I find it very upsetting. I have noticed that he changes the words to the Gospel. He adds adjectives and has even changed Jesus’ quoted words when He is preaching, whether it be to the apostles or the public.
I’ve never heard this being done before. At first I thought he may have made a reading mistake but then I realized that he does it every time he reads the Gospel.
My question: Is this allowed? Is it acceptable?
