·         In baptism, we accept Jesus as the only Lord.  All that we do, all that we are in life and even in death, belongs to the Lord.

            The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has received recognition for all sections of the English translation of the revised Roman Missal for use in Canada.  The Permanent Council has agreed that the first Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011, will be the date for the implementation of the English translation of the Missal.

            Why is the Catholic Church implementing a revised English translation of the Order of Mass? The words are being revised for two basic reasons. One is that the contents of the book that we have been calling the Sacramentary have been expanded.  Such books are always published first in Latin, and then need to be translated into vernacular languages.  Now that there is a third edition.  The Sacramentary is out of date.  More significantly, the Vatican has changed its theory of translation.  It used to allow a free rendering of the words inspired by the idioms of the vernacular language.  Now the Vatican is asking for a translation that adheres more closely to the original.

            Although the changes will come into effect only on the first Sunday of Advent, November 27th, Fr. Gyan would like to begin practising the changes in the fall.

On the First Sunday of Advent 2011, we will begin to use the new English translation of the Roman Missal.  Over the next few weeks, we will detail the new responses called for in the New Roman Missal.  Last week, we began with the Introduction and the Penitential Rite.  This week, the new Preface Introduction and Sanctus is given below.  The changes are in bold face and underlined.


Preface Introduction


Priest:  The Lord be with you

All:  And with your spirit


Priest:  Lift up your hearts

All:  We lift them up to the Lord


Priest:  Let us give thanks to the Lord our God

All:  It is right and just


Priest:  Preface

All:  Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Hosts, Heaven and earth are full of your glory.  Hosanna in the highest.  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.  Hosanna in the highest.
