Clergy attended a meeting last month to hear about the work of The International Commission of English in the Liturgy, which is producing a new English translation of the Latin mass. Priests at the meeting, held in the Diocese of Leeds, were told to question whether it was appropriate to say "good morning" once the priest was on the altar and had made the sign of the cross.

A spokesman for the diocese said: "The review of the liturgy is looking at whether there are elements of the service that have become a bit too distracting. People might argue that if you go in to a house, you say 'hi', but the priest is not going in to a house. He is going in to a sacred service. We need to emphasise that the priest is president of the community and is presiding at the service."

Do you agree with Catholic priests refusing to say 'good morning' to congregations, because it is too informal?

Really? This is a legitimate issue? With everyone going on, I can't believe this is an issue worth discussing for even one second.

While losing a record number of followers, the Church is continuously finding new ways to lose even more. Bravo

A lot of Catholics take their religion very seriously. It's the biggest sect of Christianity, with over 1.1 billion followers. So I think it's safe to say that a lot of people do agree with the Catholic Church.
