US bishops approve Revised Grail Psalter, ICEL Mass translation
November 13, 2008
The US bishops on Tuesday approved by a 203-5 vote the Revised Grail Psalter for use at Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours in the United States. By a 189-30 vote, the bishops also approved, with modifications, the International Committee for English in the Liturgy’s 2007 translation of the liturgical prayers for Masses in Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter. Both the Revised Grail Psalter and the new ICEL translations are efforts to implement Liturgiam Authenticam,the Congregation for Divine Worship’s 2001 document that called for more accurate liturgical translations.
