"Mass" Ignorance of Catholic Liturgy at the Times

And they say journalists know nothing about religion.Whatever givespeople that idea?


Correction Appended: April 14, 2009 - "An article on Monday about the final Easter Mass celebrated by Cardinal Edward M. Egan, the Roman Catholic archbishop of New York, referred incorrectly to the service he presided over on Good Friday. It was a liturgical service, not a Mass. (No Mass is said on Good Friday.)"


Correction Appended: February 8, 2009 - "An article on Jan. 25 about Pope Benedict XVI's revoking the excommunication of four schismatic bishops referred incorrectly to the use of a Good Friday prayer that calls for the conversion of Jews. The prayer is part of a service - not a Mass - on Good Friday, according to a traditional version of the Latin Mass, known as the Tridentine rite. (No Mass is said on Good Friday.)"


Correction Appended: February 12, 2008 - "An article on Saturday about a resolution by Conservative rabbis critical of a prayer on Good Friday referred incorrectly to that prayer. It is part of a service on Good Friday, but not part of a Mass. (No Mass is said on Good Friday.)"
