As CNN reports: “Catholic worshippers packed pews inside St. Peter’s Basilica to hear Pope Benedict XVI deliver Midnight Mass… Celebrants, both young and old, watched in reverence as the choir serenaded the pontiff during his ceremonial march into the church.”
Who on earth writes this stuff for CNN??
Doesn’t anybody at CNN know that Catholics go to Mass to pray, sing, recite, participate – not just “hear”? That priest “celebrates” Mass? That “celebrants” are vested priests, not laity in the congregation? That “serenades” are calm, gentle pieces? That the celebrant and ministers “process” into church??
CNN is available in over 100 million U.S. households, and CNN International can be seen by viewers in over 212 countries and territories. You’d think they could find someone who knows something about the religious ritual they’re covering.
