England: new translation of Order of Mass comes to parishes in September

Catholic World News - January 19, 2011

The bishops of England and Wales have announced that the new translation of the Order of Mass will be used in parishes beginning in September.

“The new translation is a great gift to the Church,” said Bishop Arthur Roche of Leeds in a January 18 statement. “The Mass is at the heart of what the Church is, it is where we deepen our faith in Christ and are nourished by him so that we can glorify the Lord by our lives. In the new translation we find a text that is more faithful to the Latin text and therefore a text which is richer in its theological content and allusions to the scriptures but also a translation which, I believe, will move people’s hearts and minds in prayer.”

The introduction of the new translation of the Order of Mass will be accompanied by three months of catechesis to avert “any risk of confusion or bewilderment” and help prepare parishioners for the publication of the new translation of the Roman Missal, “which at the earliest is expected by Advent 2011.”
