Introduction to the New Roman Missal

The Lord be with you ~

And with your spirit

Implementation date: 27 November 2011

Deepen, Nurture, Cultivate

"We have inherited a beautiful legacy: the Latin Mass which we will soon be able to celebrate with an English translation far superior to the translation we were given forty years ago.

"Why a translation more faithful to the Latin? We are a Latin Rite Church and the Church has given us the privilege to celebrate our ancient Latin heritage in English, so it is imperative that our translation be authentic to the Latin so that our belief is shaped according to our traditional prayers" (The Reverend James F. Kauffmann)

"The third edition of the Roman Missal enters into use in the dioceses of the United States of America as of the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011. From that date forward, no other English edition of the Roman Missal may be used in the dioceses of the United States of America." (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Decree of Publication, signed by Francis Cardinal George, Archbishop of Chicago, President, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Reverend Monsignor David J. Malloy, General 'Secretary) Read the entire decree.

"I value your leadership and have every confidence that you will direct the implementation in your individual parishes, respecting the timelines established by the USCCB.  Your guidance will have a positive effect on the liturgical changes introduced by the new translation of the Roman Missal." The Most Reverend Francis X. DiLorenzo, Bishop of Richmond, in a letter to priests of the diocese)
