USCCB: priests should begin inserting St. Joseph’s name in Eucharistic Prayers

Catholic World News - June 20, 2013

On the same day that the Vatican announced that the name of St. Joseph will now be included in all of the Eucharistic Prayers regularly used at Mass, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) confirmed that “the revised prayers are approved to be used immediately.”

The USCCB also published the revised wording of Eucharistic Prayers II, III, and IV in Latin, English, and Spanish; St. Joseph’s name is already included in Eucharistic Prayer I, the Roman Canon.

    Once again, the USCCB gives high priority to a minor change to the liturgy. But, it has been 15 years since the bishops officially recognized the need for adult faith formation in the U.S. church, and little progress has been made in the implementation of effective programs. Things important to the clergy seem to have a high priority with the USCCB. But, things important to the laity seem to take forever!
