I attended daily Mass today and heard a couple of strange things from the priest…first of all, he referred to God as our “Father and Mother”. Then, during the Eucharistic Prayer, he referred to the Pope as the “Bishop of Rome”. Now, I understand that is one of the Pope’s titles, but is it correct to use that description in the Mass? It came off disrespectful to me, especially because he called our Bishop the “local Bishop”, as if the two were perfectly equal. Am I making too much of these things?
