Wacky language vent (or "Kelly's Kooky Kliches")

I've got a lot on my plate now, but still want to think outside the box and so I figured I'd invite you to get those wacky cliches that drive you crazy off your chest.

Here's one that gets my goat.

At the "Invitation to Prayer" part of the Mass, I often hear:

"May God accept the sacrifice at your hands, for the praise and glory of God's name, for our good, and the good of all God's church."

No mention of "Lord," or any use of the masculine pronoun, because, as we all know, that would offend — who? — the "goddesses?"

Are we on the same page?

Then fire away!
