"...announcing the Gospel to “men and women of the present time,” ---because modern people no longer speak Syriac, amirite? Yeah, no. If he truly believes he has a "missionary vocation" to use the liturgical language of Allah, he should simply convert to Islam and be done with it.
It was a foreign dead language used by the the Roman Rite that so successfully converted the world, the vernacular rites stayed local to the region. Ok now these rites have emigrated with the people and will now suffer the same suicidal bad fruit of changing the liturgy as warned by Pius XII.
@Louis IX Yes, and it might not be a "blunder" at all, more "inter-faith ecumenical outreach with our Abrahamic brothers."
