I see some Catholic conservatives are all atwitter about an “embarrassing” list of preferred terms for the papal pilgrimage to Britain this week. To be honest, I don’t get the problem. Non-Catholics do refer to things Catholic in sometimes inaccurate or uninformed ways. Telling media people to refer to the Eucharist as “Holy Communion” instead of “bread and wine” seems reasonable to me. I did get a chuckle with spinning “ticket” into “pilgrim pass.” But I’m inclined to give organizers a pass on something that has turned into a public relations bumble–the pricing and “ticketing” of worshipers.
