Understanding the New Translation of the Roman Missal
Date: July 2011
Duration: 3 hours 47 minutes
Gain an insider's understanding of the Roman Missal's new translation.
Since its 2011 Advent introduction, English-speaking Catholics began hearing, speaking and praying with new words.
If you have questions about how and why this new transitional came into being, then this insightful course is for you.
The prayers of the Roman Liturgy are the accumulated wealth of 20 centuries of worship. This new translation was prepared by the Bishops and approved by the Vatican in the shared conviction that it is better to bring to Catholics in their own language the wealth what is already contained in these prayers than to try to re-write them anew.
But many people have questions about what changed and what the changes mean for worship and the Church.
Join Monsignor Michael Magee, Chair of the Systematic Theology Department of Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Pennsylvania, to explore the new translation of the Roman Missal. Msgr. Magee observed the translation process throughout its various stages from within the Vatican's Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.
Through these talks, Msgr. Magee gives you a guided tour of the sacred texts that will unite our voices in the offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for many years to come.
