Lord, who sinned?

By Fr. Paul Mankowski, S.J. (articles ) | Apr 01, 2003

Ecclesiam tuam, Domine, miseratio continuata mundet et muniat reads last Monday's collect.

"God of mercy, free your Church from sin, and protect it from evil," says the Sacramentary.

Odd. Why should the ICEL translators want to suggest that it's the Church that is enchained by sin?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
