Pronoun Envy?

I went to afternoon Mass today. I sat one row over from an elderly woman (who I later discovered was a “nun”) who apparently decided that the Novus Ordo was not to her liking. So, instead of saying this, “May the Lord receive the sacrifice from your hands to the praise and glory of His name, for our good and the good of all His Church,” she said this, “May the Lord receive the sacrifice from your hands to the praise and glory of God’s name, for our good and the good of all God’s Church.”

    That nun gets around. She was sitting behind me and my wife at this morning’s (Saturday) Mass in Pukekohe, New Zealand.

    Sigh – I hear this quite a lot – mostly from women, but occasionally from men as well.

    the key statement “who I later discovered was a nun.”
    Why is it likely she was not wearing a habit?

    Elderly, huh?

    I think I remember her when I was a kid and she was young.

    Thank God time flies.

    >sigh<… Soon we'll no doubt be compelled to refer to the deity as "he-she-it-animal-vegetable-mineral-rock-paper-scissors," or something of that nature. Rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it?

    It is great to be able to finally find excellent discussions where I feel like I’m able to trust the text as well as respect the individuals who post it.
