You’re welcome!

Quite often Pray Tell receives words of appreciation from the general public. Sometimes, as is the case with the following note, the sender wishes to remain anonymous. Our reply is: “You’re welcome!”

I want to thank you for having this blog. It is quite helpful to see a place for (mostly) reasoned and respectful dialog.  I’ve been an ecclesial lay minister for over 20 years. I aim to help adults understand and live their faith more deeply, including in the RCIA.

More and more these days, I wonder WHY people would want to become Catholic. I have no thought of leaving my Church, but am saddened, angered, and frustrated by how the leaders of it are retreating from me. In particular, the new missal translation presents a tremendous challenge. I have resolved not to touch it – to leave it to my pastor to ‘explain’… yet I know I’ll have to cover it at some point.

At any rate, Pray Tell helps me to have resources and to access a variety of perspectives. I thank you for providing that.

    I find it sad that so many are prejudging and resolved to treat the new translation as if it were an “unclean thing” before it has even been released. It reminds me of nothing so much as some of those dyed in the wool extraordinary form afficionadoes for whom the words “novus ordo” is a contemptuous swear word. I’ve certainly had my run in with such persons, but then I am strange animal who likes both forms of the Roman rite.
