But relief from this apparent ordeal does not come yet, because it's not ended at all, there's a lot more still to come!
I say the response with tremendous sincerity, particularly on Sundays when we have been singing that we ourselves are the bread of life.

[Oops. Petergee was complaining about the old Mass; I thought we were talking about the new.]

You are being overdramatic. A bad translation does not mean Hell has won a final victory over the Church, which will never happen. Rome has indeed spoken clearly on this matter, in the Catechism of the Council of Trent, edited under Saint Charles Borromeo, and published by decree of Pope Saint Pius V.

I am not expecting a "golden age" of perfection in the Church before our Lord's second coming at the end of time, but I do believe things can be better than they are now.

May the Holy Spirit give you a blessed and spiritually fruitful Sunday.
