Bishops have given up the moral high ground

I HOPE that the pages of the Irish Independent from Tuesday and Wednesday of this week will make people sit up and take note of some realities in this 21st century.
On Tuesday, we read how the Catholic bishops, despite opposition from many of their priests, are pushing through reform of the Mass and dictating more obscure prayers for the congregation to mouth every Sunday, without actually understanding what they are saying.
Do these guys really see a God in Heaven who thinks these “responses” needs their urgent attention?
