Great Source for the New Translation


I've talked before about the new translation of the Mass that is coming out and how I think it will be a great opportunity to get people into the text of the Mass. I believe people will, at least for a while, will be more intentional and more thoughtful about what words they are using at Mass. Here is a great resource from the USCCB that has the texts the priest will be using AND, AND, AND... the scriptural references footnoted at the bottom of each page! This is an absolutely wonderful resource for people, and I urge you to take a look at it some time, especially if you are looking for something to pray over in adoration or during your prayer time. Also, this would make a great Lenten discipline - maybe taking one page a day and looking at the words of the Mass just on that page - it works out almost perfectly because there are 43 pages to the document.
