One of the changes in liturgy that I do not like since we have become Catholic is the change from "sin of the world" to "sins of the world."
To me the word "sin" in this context is already plural and adding the "s" is almost as annoying as inclusive language. Do not get me started on inclusive language.
When I saw the Catholic hymnal up here in Canada had changed the words of Good Christian men rejoice" to "Good Christians, all rejoice!" I wanted to throw it.
So would someone erudite please explain to my why "sins" instead of the perfectly good word "sin" which is so much better for singing is now what we must say and is there any hope the international commission looking at Ordinariate liturgy can bring back "sin" instead of "sins"? Christian, how about a poll?
In dust and ashes, I repent. "Sins" it is.
I will get used to it.
But, you all had fun in the comments section, no?
