What would you say if I told you that a parish of the Archdiocese refuses to use the new, exclusive English translation of the Roman Missal (Ordinary Form)? Instead, this parish stubbornly clings to the 1973 mistranslation and substitutes its own judgement for that of the Church?

And yet, if you don’t care about the rulings of the Pope or your Archbishop, why call yourself Catholic at all?
