    Rick, I still struggle with the “new” version of the Nicene Creed; so I pick up the book from the rack in front of me and read from it – because I want to get it right, every time.

    But, I do have a problem with priests (I personally know of three) that somehow are able to say every word except “man”. I haven’t screwed up the courage (i.e., found the best words) to ask (“confront”) the one priest in my current parish why he does that (yes, I am absolutely sure he intentionally omits the word).

    Having been an altar boy, I had learned the Mass in Latin, and I still say the Apostles’ Creed, and other prayers, in Latin (in private prayer). And, I still prefer that Creed. Besides the Nicene Creed seems to gloss over Christ’s journey to Hell (proving in my mind that GOD is indeed, omnipotent).

    Yours in Christ,
