Here it is, reason #666, on why the USCCB is a highly flawed institution filled with the (unholy) Spirit of Vatican II:
This past Sunday in the Novus Ordo US Lectionary (both a USCCB invention), the Bible verse used in the Gospel was the Gospel of St. Mark 9:35 (36)…
RSV (Catholic Edition)
And he took a child, and put him in the midst of them; and taking him in his arms, he said to them,
And taking a child, he set him in the midst of them. Whom when he had embraced, he saith to them:
Taking a child he placed it in their midst, and putting his arms around it he said to them,
Does anyone, especially Catholics, ever refer to a baby as an "it"?

Before I knew better I made the mistake of picking up the NAB Study Bible. I remember really being happy obtaining a Catholic study Bible. That happiness did not last very long as I read the study notes. I am convinced these study notes were written by Statler & Waldorf, the two critics on the balcony from The Muppet Show. It seemed their whole purpose was skepticism and undermining the Biblical text, a kind of Biblical fisking. Not that all of the notes were this way, but they definitely steered that way. Lousy translation, lousy notes. What a package.
