I have to disagree with Fr. Jim about the microphone joke -- I think "And with your spirit" is an even better punch line for "there's something wrong with this mic"! But I guess it's true the joke won't make sense until we all get used to the changes. On the other hand, by the time the new response becomes automatic, you'll have a whole new audience that hasn't heard that joke before.
