One of the Novus Ordo prayers recited after the Our Father made me quite uncomfortable because I remember what the prayer said before the 1960s.
Deliver us, Lord, from every evil, and grant us peace in our day. In your mercy keep us free from sin and protect us from all anxiety as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the Kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever.--Novus OrdoNow look at the 'same' Mass prayer before Vatican II and try to find the word anxiety:
Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the Holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may always be free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.--Old MassAnxiety refers to "a state of uneasiness and apprehension, as about future uncertainties." Are Catholics who are worried about the future of the local church praying to be protected from feelings of uneasiness about the future? But these feelings of alarm make us work to change the future for the better!
