Ten examples of Catholic-speak that should be banned

Only ten? Not remotely. But as Fr. Alexander Lucie-Smith points out, this is his list. You are welcome to make up your own. 
9) Ongoing. This is a great favourite, especially when nothing is in fact going on. “Our investigations are ongoing” translates as: “We are doing nothing about it at present, except fob you off with words.”
6) Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Just ban it. Now. Never let these words be mentioned together again. Ever.
3) Share.

The Curt Jester adds to the fun.

2) Faith Community 

This could well turn into an ongoing continuing series.
