New Mass Translation Approved

By on 6.16.06 | 10:19AM

The bishops took the plunge into a new translation of the Mass yesterday. Good news for those who have long lamented the current English translation's clumsiness.

However, the New York Times article notes, the bishops also rejected over 60 of the changes recommended by the International Committee on English in the Liturgy. The Vatican may still have a few things to say about that, Fr. Z points out, calling the bishops' move "a game of chicken." (Hat tip: Amy Welborn)
