New English Translation of the Mass

by Steve Ray on March 6, 2009

( If you want to really understand why the Church is developing a new translation of the Mass, look no further than the brilliant address on this subject given by the new Archbishop of Detroit, who is also a member of the U.S. Bishops’ Worship Committee. Archbishop Allen Vigneron spoke at the Gateway Liturgical Conference in St. Louis in November.

Archbishop Vigneron’s talk has been published in the latest issue of the Adoremus Bulletin. It is the best thing I’ve seen, making everything wonderfully clear, and including excellent examples: The Art of Pastoral Translation at the Service of Communion.
