    Regarding what year it is: The USCCB always declares a theme for every year, even if the Pope doesn’t. This year’s theme is Matrimony: The Sacrament of Enduring Love.

    It was known from the beginning that a new translation would be needed for us English speakers. The initial translation from Latin into English was done hastily so that we could start getting used to saying Mass in our own language. But the words weren’t quite right and didn’t match what every other language was saying. So now, after many long years of refinement, the new “cleaned-up” translation is finally ready to be implemented next fall. It’s nice to know that we’ll finally be saying Mass in the way Vatican II intended!

    Technically, the Mass isn’t changing, just the way it is translated from the Latin. The new translation is sharper in terms of literal and scriptural meaning.

  • Henrik

    new changes in the mass?!? I thought novus ordo allready was the big change? i can’t stand more changes right now. What we need is the tridentine mass…
