I asked this on the other thread...

"For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven..."

At my church, they omit the "men" and say "For us and for our salvation..." Is this some new "PC" thing?

That’s called using “inclusive language” and yes it is very PC.

The GIRM gives the offical language of the Holy Mass. Nothing is to be added, changed or omitted. The Vatican is cracking down on it and depending on your Bishop, you should see a change.

Yes, it is. The ‘new’ Methodist hymnal is nearly unrecognizable. I was asked to sing at a funeral when I came to the funeral (not before) and I looked through the hymnal and found very few songs I recognized. And I’ve been singing in churches and choirs since I was 11.

No. It is a liturgical abuse.
