In response to thees and thous...., written by Kate on July 02, 1998 at 12:20:08
] "thee" continued in religious language until very recently - some people still use "thee" in prayer. But it now tends to be used because of its distinction and difference, rather than it's intimacy - because we don't call our loved ones "thee" it is rather strange to cal god "thee". So "thee" has now dropped out of much religious discourse, including, I think, the Catholic liturgy.
Thanks, Kate that was great. Do Catholics still say their "Hail Mary": "Blessed art Thou among women"? To me, it would sound strange "Blessed are You among women".
