HERE COMES THE MASS! HERE COMES THE MASS!
I can't remember if it was Laugh-in or The Flip Wilson Show, but there was an on-going skit called, "Here Comes the Judge! Here Comes the Judge!" Well, finally, we can say about the new English translation: Here Comes the Mass! Here Comes the Mass!
What's interesting is that what many people thought was the final version of the re-translated English Mass and even posted on the USCCB's website, was in fact not the final version. Even after the bishops and the Vatican gave the final approval, some tweaking still took place. Some found the "arbitrary" tweaking, without things going back to committee or national conferences of bishops, very disturbing. I guess they don't have better things to worry about.
At any rate, you can compare some of the final changes from this link from the blog "Praytell." PRESS HERE! PRESS HERE!
AS WELL, YOU CAN PRESS THIS ENTIRE SENTENCE AND GO TO THE BISHOPS' WEBSITE FOR THE COMPLETE ORDER OF THE MASS AND WHAT THE NEW TRANSLATION FOR THE LAITY'S PART'S OF THE MASS WILL BE. PRESS THIS WHOLE THING! PRESS THIS WHOLE THING!
