Roman Missal, Third Edition
Since the end of Vatican II, bishops and theologians have been looking at the Latin texts of the Roman Missal and re-translating them to conform more closely to it’s origins. After nearly fifty years of research, debate, and prayer the Vatican has approved the Third Translation of the Roman Missal. These changes took effect the first week of advent (November 27, 2011). The structure of the mass remains unchanged in the new edition of the Roman Missal. However, almost every prayer in the Mass has been re-translated from Latin to English; some prayers now recited by memory will need to be relearned. For more information, see:
