A Second Letter to the Romans?

It sounds like a Dan Brown kind of thing, just less sexy. When one opens a new Italian Lectionary, one might get that impression when the proclamation line preceding the Scripture passage reads:

The First Letter of St. Paul to the Romans

The new Lectionary as published has about a dozen typos. Italian bishops authorized the production of adhesive strips to cover up the errors. Do you suppose they needed Vatican approval for printing them?

“Cut and paste” was blamed for most of the errors. Like musicians, I think editors need a deep knowledge of their craft: being good spellers, knowing grammar and punctuation, actually reading and not relying on a computer to do the number-crunching in silicon.

    Editors? Editors? I worry they are becoming an extinct species. Good editors are rarer than platinum these days.
