***********************************************************************************************                                                The New Missal

What differences can we expect at Mass from September 2011?                                               From September, congregations will begin to pray the new translations of the people’s prayers at Mass. These new texts will be on specially produced “congregational cards” and will assist us in becoming more familiar with the new edition. In some places people will, by then, already be familiar with this congregational card through using it at weekday Mass or at parish meetings.

Where do I find the changes in the people’s prayers at Mass?                                                     The congregational card will have all the prayers and responses that are changing. These are also available on and accompanied by brief video explanations. There are new translations of ‘I confess’ ‘Glory to God in the highest’, the Creeds, the acclamations in the Eucharistic Prayers, “Lord, I am not worthy” and a number of other prayers and responses, which are very slightly changed; for example, in the Holy, Holy, we say ‘Lord God of hosts’ and in the response to “Pray, brothers and sisters” the addition of one word, ‘holy’ before “Church”; where we responded ‘And also with you’, we now say ‘ And with your spirit’ 


In the world today, we are surrounded by, some would say bombarded with, instructions about how we should live, what we should eat and drink and weigh, even what we should think about any given issue...Remembering that we are living in Christ is more important, and putting first our life in him will help us to find balance in all the other areas of our life, too.                                                                               Susan Hibbins from Light for our Path (2011)
