Our priests are hearing about the coming new Roman Missal

Bishop Blase Cupich of Rapid City, South Dakota, is orienting our priests about the new Roman Missal at five churches, each in a different pastoral region, around the Archdiocese from February 2 to February 4. So says the web site of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Our U.S. bishops have a web page about the new Roman Missal:
http://usccb.org/romanmissal/

Some other good resources:
http://www.adoremus.org/
http://wdtprs.com/blog/

At this latter web site, Fr. Zuhlsdorf has quoted a Catholic News Service article:

"Vatican making final review of English liturgical translations
By Cindy Wooden – Catholic News Service Monday, 01 February 2010

"The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments is pulling together the final version of the English translation of the complete Roman Missal, the book of prayers used at Mass...

"Marist Father Anthony Ward, an official of the congregation for worship, said that because bishops’ conferences approved the Roman Missal in sections over a period of years, a final review and minor edits were needed to ensure consistency..."

Fr. Zuhlsdorf says the Vatican is making some changes to translations approved by the various bishops' conferences. He also says it looks as if the new Roman Missal will be introduced in U.S. parishes at the beginning of Advent 2011.

Incidentally, Happy Feast of St. Blaise/San Blas, Wednesday, February 3! Hope you can have your throat blessed at Mass.

Adoremus is not a good site. You should only look at post sites that are sponsored by our bishops!!!!!

I'm sure we will hear about the "spirit" of the "new" roman missals when referring to the latest liturgical dance moves.

For your information, Archbishop Mark Coleridge has recently started an online forum regarding the new Roman Missal. The audio and the text of his talk are also available. See http://community.catholiclife.org.au/group/mr3thenewliturgy

Dear Anonymous 5:03 p.m.,

Well, we differ. Seems to me that Adoremus has a lot of great Catholic content. Our bishops do not sponsor very many sites, so isn't it all right to check various Catholic sites that exist?

One good thing to do is look at the various diocesan web sites and read what the bishops have to say and what resources and links they provide. Their own messages, their columns in their diocesan newspapers, and the content of the diocesan newspapers can be useful.

Also worth viewing is our U.S. bishops' web site, which is:
www.usccb.org

EWTN has a great and vast web site that has great content. They are at: www.ewtn.com

Dear Anonymous 4:28 p.m.,

You're right on the money -- that's what some of the liberals will pull.

Thanks for spotlighting the way the liberals act!
