A slight change in wording: To some this may seem petty, even annoying (I admit, having been through several major changes in my time as a priest—though all Masses before a change were valid and meaningful), but we are now being asked to eliminate the word, “One”, from the closing formula to prayers that end with “Through Jesus Christ, Who lives in unity with the Father and the Holy Spirit, (now) God, forever and ever.” No longer “One God”. I guess they felt the word “one” was redundant.
I know, we (clergy) have to kid too, that the liturgists at work in the Church seem to have to come up with something now and then to justify their position. Mea Culpa for our thoughts on the matter. At times it does seem laughable though; you are not alone if thinking so.~Fr. John
