Oh Commonweal, Part 2423

Someone doesn't like the new translation of the Mass
Six months after the imposition of the new English edition of the Roman Missal, the volume of dissatisfaction has moderated. People seem resigned to the wooden and literal translations (“people of good will,” “enter under my roof”), archaic vocabulary (“dewfall,” “consubstantial,” “oblation”), and inflated language of prayer (“holy and unblemished,” “graciously grant,” “paying their homage”).:
But these are just some of the flaws.  The problem with the new Mass translation is the use of the word "chalice" .  How hierarchical!
