U.S. bishops finally quash Bishop Trautman's 10 years of defending faulty translation of the Roman Missal

Maybe you've heard the good news: At their semi-annual fall meeting this week, the U.S. bishops finished approving, overwhelmingly, the final portions of the Vatican-okayed accurate English translations of the Roman Missal. Click on this post's title to see the official news.

This is good news for almost everyone except Bishop Donald Trautman, who has complained long and loud about the translation, which stresses accuracy -- fidelity to the Latin texts.

No doubt he would say he doesn't object to the translation's accuracy. But given his strident criticisms of the translation, Catholics can be forgiven for wondering about that.

To read some background about the faulty translation, go to:

The translation now goes to Rome for approval sometime in 2010 and for implementation here in the USA about a year after that.

Let's pray that the accurate translation gets implemented here sooner than expected and that it will help bring back to the Sacraments everyone who has left the Church in the last 45 years.
