Jesus Said: Bring Me the Pagans (Day 4 of Divine Mercy Novena)

I came across this interesting little gem on EWTN yesterday.

*Our Lord's original words here were "the pagans." Since the pontificate of Pope John XXIII, the Church has seen fit to replace this term with clearer and more appropriate terminology.
Two questions come to my mind...

1. What is unclear about the word pagans?

2. Since Christ is incapable of being inappropriate, how could one ever contemplate or perceive themselves as Christ's editor?!

That's what you call breathtaking narcissism.

Now Carol, you know that we can't go around destroying the self-esteem of schismatics, heretics, and ,let us not forget, perfidious Jews, even if it is true! It wold be soooo against that Vatican II spirit we've been hearing about for the last 50 years!

I always wondered about that, Carol.
