Now we know why "Chalice" in the new translation IS correct!
Sister Sue Rakoczy IHM (Servants of Immaculate Mary), a lecturer in spirituality and dogmatic theology who has spent many years in South Africa and taught in the U.S. says that Christ did NOT celebrate the first Mass at the Last Supper. Read it here. If I was at all hesitant about the use of the word "Chalice" in the new translation, I am no longer. I would stick my neck out and say the choice of that word was inspired by the Holy Spirit. I wonder what other interesting unorthodox views the good sister holds. I'm sure she did great work in Africa but I will not be reading any of her articles or - should she write any - books.
