New English translation of Mass unveiled in Australia
CWN - June 13, 2011
The new English-language translation of the Roman Missal has been introduced in Australia, drawing a strong positive response.
“People are quietly appreciative,” said Cardinal George Pell of Sydney. One priest, delighted with his first experience using the new translation, was far more positive, telling The Australian:
The new text will have a transformative effect, invoking a strong sense of the sacred. It will make people think about Christ's sacrifice as it is relived in every Mass.
The new translation, which hews more closely to the language of the Latin original, will be introduced in the US for the 1st Sunday of Advent.
