Q&A

Should I complain to the bishop about a priest’s changing the words of the Mass reading?

Question:

At Mass last Sunday the lector ignored the beginning of the Scripture passage in Ephesians 5:24-33: &quot;Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be subject to their own husbands in everything&quot; and began with the section on the duties of husbands. When I questioned the lector, she said she eliminated it because it was offensive to women. I later found out that the priest gave her permission, and apparently this is not the first time he has given such instruction. Should I contact the bishop?<br />
