Preparing for the new
translation of the
Roman Missal


The Mass translation that had  been used since the early 1970s underwent a complete new translation and update recently and was implemented on the first Sunday of Advent in 2011. Approved by the United States bishops and confirmed by the Vatican, the new translation is more faithful to the Latin original texts and more fully express the scriptural foundation of the Liturgy. The articles below will help you become familiar with the new translation and deepen your understanding of the Sacred Liturgy.
