Thanks to the progressives in the ICEL, the Lutheran church did a better job of preserving the Nicene creed than the catholics.
What a shame that for more than forty years we have had the impoverished language of the modernists for what is supposed to be a counter-cultural spiritual and religious system.
So, now we go back to where we were before the ICEL played Gods and messed with the liturgy.
I have an idea...instead of spending 11 years re-translating the 1962 missal, let's just use the 1962 missal. Simple? Yes.
More beautiful? Oh, yes, by far.
I am disgusted that the progressive liberals were able to hijack the liturgy, music and art of the church. Look at the horrendous damage.:mad: When will we learn???
Just FYI, this thread is a year old.
I don't know that it's accurate to label ICEL as full of "progressives" any more. That may have been true in the 1970's, but I don't think that's an accurate assessment of the present make-up of the ICEL. After all, it is the present ICEL that is giving us the beautiful new English translation that is coming this Advent.
Instead of lamenting the past (about which there is certainly no shortage of things to lament), I think it is more productive to be hopeful and joyful about the present and future. The new translation that is coming soon is a vast improvement over the current one. I believe things are heading in a much better direction now.
