Welcoming the Roman Missal: Third Edition

From the Office of Divine Worship

Washington, D.C. At the present time, we are still awaiting the recognitio from Rome, the approval of the translations of the last sections of the Roman Missal. Once that confirmation is received, training and preparation will begin in earnest.

Roman MissalThe main source of information continues to be the United States Conference of Catholic Bishop's Office of Divine Worship website: www.USCCB.org/romanmissal.

Pastors are urged to advise parishioners to look at this website for information concerning the changes in the translations of some of the prayers of the people. Priests can take advantage of this website to better familiarize themselves with the updated priest's parts of the Mass, especially the Eucharistic Prayers. By reading out loud these prayers and other parts of the Mass to get a sense of their vocabulary, style and cadence, priests will be well-prepared to prayerfully proclaim the new translation when it is implemented. The Frequently Asked Questions section can be used to help answer parishioners questions concerning the forthcoming Missal. Finally, in parishes that have a sizeable Hispanic population, especially those who attend Masses in English from time to time, the Espanol section of the website can assist pastors in catechizing Spanish-speaking parishioners in the coming translation changes and how that might impact them.
