Old Apostle’s Creed

Below is the text of the Apostle’s Creed prior to the liturgical changes in Advent 2011.

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth;

I believe in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord; He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body,and the life everlasting. Amen.

    Why, why, why did they change it!? My old parish still does it the original way, but we’ve recently moved and the new parish does it the new way. Personally, I really dislike it, and feel uncomfortable saying it. All of the “new” tweaks on the Mass make me wonder if I’m even in the right church! If I feel this wierd about it in my 30s, how does it make the 70+ year olds feel?
