Catholics Prepare for New Mass Translation
This weekend, Catholics across the U.S. and English speaking countries will begin using a new translation of the missal, which is the text and prayers used during services, according to a WNYC report.
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.
“When they come to mass they want something they can count on, so it’s going to be kind of difficult. I admit that,” New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, told WNYC. “But I think in the long run they are going to highly appreciate it. The newer translation is more poetic, more uplifting, more reverent, more awesome, as my nieces would say.”
Among the changes, “when the priest offers the opening blessing, ‘The Lord be with you,’ the response is changing from, ‘And also with you’ to ‘And with your spirit.’” the article stated.
