Omitting reference to Hell in Gospel

What would you do if the priest removed from the Gospel during Mass a reference to hell?

Is this a hypothetical question or did it happen?

Consider the possibility, you dozed off through one verse. This can happen when that same tired old lector commands the ambo.

Change is good.

I can’t see where Hell has been mentioned at all in any recent Gospel. What am I missing?

It’s possible that he’s using an authorized shortened form of the Gospel which may omit the reference you were expecting.

Can you please be specific? Which Gospel reading are you referring to that the priest omitted the refence to Hell.

Hypothetical questions on this are a waste of time.
