    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 01-28-15 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    A Look at the “Actual Mass” of Vatican II: the 1965 Missal By: Msgr. Charles PopeA couple of weeks ago I wrote a cautionary article aimed at my traditionally-minded brethren saying, among other things, that we ought to be careful in identifying the Ordinary Form of the Mass (1970 Missal and beyond) as the “Mass of Vatican II.”  I will not reproduce that whole article here. I will only recall three points:1. The Mass was already undergoing significant changes, beginning in the 1940s and picking up speed through the 1950s. More changes were planned by the Vatican before the Second Vatican...

    A Roman Missal. Credit: Mazur Denver, Colo., Nov 27, 2011 / 07:29 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- After the switch to a new Mass translation, old liturgical books should be respectfully buried, either intact or after being burned, according to the U.S. bishops. Whether or not the Sacramentary has been blessed by an official rite, it is appropriate to treat it with care, the bishops' Secretariat for Divine Worship said in a recent response to several queries from U.S. Catholics. Its disposal should be handled with respect. The bishops' liturgy office recommends burying the Sacramentary in an appropriate location on church...
  • The New Roman Missal: There Will Be Blood (Catholic Caucus)

    Catholic Lane ^ | November 18, 2011 | Dr. Edward Sri
    [1]“For all” to “for many” Of all the changes in the new translation, two small words used by the priest at the consecration are evoking the most questions. Those two words are “for many.”Currently, the priest refers to Jesus’ blood as having redemptive value “for all”:“This is the cup of My blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant. It will be shed for you and for all for the forgiveness of sins…”But as of November 27, the new translation replaces the words “for all” with “for many.”Some have raised concerns that the words “for many” limit the...

    The long-awaited introduction of the new translation of the Roman Missal on November 27, the First Sunday of Advent, offers the Church in the Anglophere an opportunity to reflect on the riches of the liturgy, its biblical vocabulary, and its virtually inexhaustible storehouse of images. Much of that vocabulary, and a great many of those images, were lost under the dynamic equivalence theory of translation; they have now been restored under the formal equivalence method of translating. Over the next years and decades, the Catholic Church will be reminded of just what a treasure-house of wonders the liturgy is.At the...

( "How should pastors acquit themselves, when -- as it is mostly -- universal Church and particular-legal regulations contradict one another?" Fr. Hendrick Jolie (46) asked this question in an interview for the most recent edition of the Catholic monthly 'Kirchliche Umschau'.

    Milwaukee priests quoted in a local newspaper article on the third edition of the Roman Missal are lamenting the revised translations, which more closely reflect the content and majesty of the original Latin. The bottom line for me is why, said Father Alan Jurkus. Why, with everything else that's going on in the Church, do we have to rub salt in the wounds? For some people this will be very unsettling, added Father Ken Smits. The real concern is among the parish priests, who will have to explain something many of them are not in favor of. You can call...

In a similar way, when supper was ended, he took this precious chalice in his holy and venerable hands, and once more giving you thanks, he said the blessing and gave the...

    I n his essay “Why Don’t We Say, ‘Wait?’” (Dec. 14), Father Michael Ryan describes his involvement in the liturgical renewal following the Second Vatican Council. Let me begin my response to his article by doing the same. I was a freshman in high school when the “vernacularization” of the liturgy began and a junior in college seminary when the process reached its climax. Having majored in classical languages, I naturally was quite interested in the process and flattered when I was invited by the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) to participate in the translation effort....

    A medieval book is to become the first item from a British national museum to be returned to its rightful owners under a new law governing looted artefacts. The Benevento Missal, which was stolen from a cathedral in southern Italy soon after the Allies bombed the city during the Second World War, has been in the collection of the British Library (formerly the British Museum Library) since 1947. After a change in the law, it could be back in Italy within months, according to The Art Newspaper. The missal’s return could also focus attention on other, more high-profile cases, such...

    JOHANNESBURG (AP) A new translation of the Roman Catholic Mass that is to be introduced worldwide in a few years is getting an accidental trial run in South Africa, where some parishioners are complaining it's too hard to understand. The controversy comes as Pope Benedict XVI travels Tuesday to Cameroon on his first papal pilgrimage to the continent that has the fastest growing congregation of Catholics. Critics say the new, more literal word-for-word translation is part of an attempt to roll back the progress made decades ago when the church halted its insistence on Latin. In a misunderstanding, some...

    Washington, Jul. 7, 2008 ( - The US bishops have rejected the latest proposed English translation of the liturgical prayers from the Roman Missal. In a mail-in ballot, support for the proposed translation fell well short of the two-thirds required for approval by the US bishops' conference. The mail ballot became necessary because of an inconclusive vote at a June meeting of the episcopal conference. The proposed translation was for "Proper" prayers for the Mass: the prayers for particular feasts and liturgical seasons. The US bishops have already given their consent to an English translation of the unchanging prayers of...
