When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be the Pope. This was because the new Pope was fluent in, like, eleven languages, & I conflated this skill, which I desired for myself, with the office. I don't want to be the Pope anymore, but I still keep an eye on the Vatican.

The new new Pope, Benedict XVI (he'll always be Ratzinger to me), has decided to allow any priest to say the Latin Tridentine Mass, which was used from 1570 to 1970, and which contains some text insulting to the Jews. They could have taken that out.

I get the idea, from this and other things, that Ratzinger dreams of the Church of long ago, a European institution secure in its total correctness and virtue. He seems unconcerned that trying to Europeanize it will hasten its decline. Nor should he be. His faith seems appropriate.

Which is the anti-Semtic part?

Mr Lojban, if I were on the proper committee, I would totally vote for you for Pope.

It is a Good Friday prayer for the conversion of the Jews. I couldn't find it Monday, but I found it today. I will post it in the next few days, in glorious trilinguality!

Thanks! That means a lot coming from you.
