What do you think of the New Roman Missal? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
We hope that you had a chance to attend one of the Kathy Coffee presentations last week at Holy Family regarding the changes to the new Roman Missal which will be implemented Nov. 27th, 2011, the first Sunday of Advent.
This is what the US Conference of Catholic Bishops tell us about the institution of these revisions:
Pope John Paul II announced a revised version of the Missale Romanum during the Jubilee Year 2000. Among other things, the revised edition of the Missale Romanum contains prayers for the observances of recently canonized saints, additional prefaces for the Eucharistic Prayers, additional Votive Masses and Masses and Prayers for Various Needs and Occasions, and some updated and revised rubrics (instructions) for the celebration of the Mass. The English translation of the Roman Missal will also include updated translations of existing prayers, including some of the well-known responses and acclamations of the people.
But we would like to hear what you think about the changes and invite you to share your thoughts and reflection in the “comment” section below.
