Every day since Ash Wednesday I have thought a little about a change in the liturgy of the ordinary form of the Roman Mass that has been described as “minor.”

This change was in what is called the doxology of the collect prayers in the Missal. Instead of saying, “Through Jesus Christ Our Lord in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever,” the Committee on Divine Worship of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops instructed us to omit the adjective “one” before the name of the Deity. 

I sent an email to one of my friends about the change, and she asked whether this had anything to do with Pachamama. That indicates the skepticism and even suspicion sometimes provoked by some official (and “unofficial” but coming from officials) pronouncements by institutional branches of the Vatican and the bishops’ conference.
