'Meet Jesus' in the new Roman Missal
Posted by Mary DeTurris Poust
Bishop William Murphy of Rockville Centre uses the video clip above to invite young Catholics to go beyond simply learning the words of the new translation of the Roman Missal and to embrace it and to allow the revised Missal to bring them closer to Jesus and to others. It's a message we can all take to heart as we begin to explore the new changes and make them part of our collective language. The new translation will go into effect in Advent 2011, so we have one year to get used to the idea.
You can also access Bishop Murphy's new pastoral on this subject, "Belong More Deeply," by clicking HERE.
While we're on the topic of the new translation, let me share my own news related to it. I'll have a new book,"The Essential Guide to Catholic Prayer and the Mass," coming out on March 1. It will include not only extensive information on all types of Catholic prayer and devotion but an entire section on the Mass and, specifically, the new translation, complete with all the changed prayers and responses. I'll keep you posted as the release date nears.
