Catholics Prepare for New Mass Translation

Catholics Prepare for New Mass Translation

Many Catholics have been preparing for the change for several months, according to the article, and this is the biggest change to Catholic services in more than 30 years.

The newer translation is more poetic, more uplifting, more reverent, more awesome, as my nieces would say.”
