About Protestant Translations of the Bible

+

The Pope was presented with an inter-confessinal bible.

The acid test for a translation is to look at Luke 1:28:

And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. (Douay Rheims)
 Into her presence the angel came, and said, Hail, thou who art full of grace; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women. Latin: Et ingressus angelus ad eam dixit: Ave gratia plena: Dominus tecum: benedicta tu in mulieribus.(Knox)

And then we have this:
The angel came to her and said, “Peace be with you! The Lord is with you and has greatly blessed you!” (colloquial 'You Version' - ie protestant / heretical / false translation)
The angel came to her and said, “Peace be with you! The Lord is with you and has greatly blessed you!” (another 'inter-confessional' translation made by the same group that provided the bible to the Pope)

 I'm sorry but the Protestants are simply altering the doctrine to suit their own beliefs.

Since it doesn't put forward the Catholic doctrine on Grace and the Blessed Virgin Mary, I guess it really isn't 'inter-confessional' is it?

Sad by true.

With the condition of affairs in the cultural, political and physical world in a state of disarray we enter Lent - Ash Wednesday - February 25th - 2004 - more compelled then ever to pursue, diligently and faithfully, our personal road to holiness. It is a long, difficult path each of us treads, however, we do know the journey can be sweeter and more blessed if we travel it with others. Jesus has told us: "Wherever two or more are gathered in my name, I am with you." And there are many other biblical passages, as well, that urge us to love and help one another.

A 'Thirty Day Prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary ' was said by many Catholics during troubled times in their lives up until Vatican II. While looking through old stored away boxes, I came across a small white prayer book of the kind give…

Homily vs Sermon

+ JMJ
Something that I've noticed is that Modern Catholics use the phrase 'Homily' instead of 'Sermon'.

I've often wondered about this difference.

Here's what I found

Catholic Encyclopedia (1910) Homily:
...Since Origen's time homily has meant, and still means, a commentary, without formal introduction, division, or conclusion, on some part of Sacred Scripture, the aim being to explain the literal, and evolve the spiritual, meaning of the Sacred Text.  ...
Wikipedia Sermon::
A sermon is an oration, lecture, or talk by a member of a religious institution or clergy. Sermons address a scriptural, theological, religious, or moral topic, usually expounding on a type of belief, law, or behavior within both past and present contexts. Elements of the sermon often include exposition, exhortation, and practical application.

As to preaching at the present day, we can clearly trace the influence, in many respects, of Schola…
