The New Missal
When and why are we getting a new edition of the Roman Missal?
The new edition of the Missal will come into full use over a period of time between September and the 27th November 2011, the first Sunday of Advent. The new edition is necessary for a number of reasons. 
Firstly, in the years since 1975 when our current Missal was published, a number of additional texts have been made available for use in the Mass. These include additional Eucharist Prayers, some new Masses of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Masses for over twenty new Feasts of Saints ( for example, St Pius of Pietrelcina/ Padre Pio, Edith Stein, Maximilian Kolbe). The new material is to be included in the Missal so that it can be used in our celebrations. 
Secondly, in 2001 the Holy See issued new directives for the translation of the Latin texts. Translators were asked to make the English text follow more closely the original Latin in its working and structure. They were also asked to strengthen the biblical language and images in the texts and to reintroduce some theological vocabulary that may have been lost over the years. 
Across the English-speaking world the new edition of the Roman Missal will therefore contain both new material and a new style of translation.
