New Mass Translation Outside Mass; Bad Confession Advice; Customer Responsibility; and More!

BY Jimmy Akin

So the new Mass Translation has gone into effect! (Woo-hoo!) But there are still questions about it that need to be asked.

For example: If you’re in a *different* liturgy (not the Mass, one of the other sacraments) and the priest says “The Lord be with you,” what are you supposed to say? The old “And also with you” or the new “And with your spirit”?

Or what if you’re saying the Confetior in another service? Or how about using the Collect from Mass in the Liturgy of the Hours? Or taking Communion to an elderly person who suffers from dementia and is only used to the old translation?

Also, what should you do if a priest tells you in confession not to confess all your mortal sins? Does this invalidate the confession? Do you need to go back and confess them? What to say to a priest who tells you this kind of thing?

What are our responsibilities as customers? Do we have a moral obligation to refuse to purchase products that may have involved animal cruelty or poor working conditions at factories in the third world? Is it a sin to do so? How could we untangle these questions?

Suppose you innocently mention something to a co-worker and that results in the co-worker going out and committing a mortal sin. How responsible are you for what happened? Did *you* sin?

These are among the questions we explore in this week’s episode of the Jimmy Akin Podcast!
