THE NEW MISSAL: When and why are we getting a new edition of the Roman Missal. The new edition of the missal will come to full use over a period of time between September and the 27th November 2011, the first Sunday of advent. The new edition is necessary for a number of reasons. Firstly in the years since 1975 when our current missal was published a number of additional texts have been made available for use in the Mass. These include additional Eucharistic Prayers some new masses of the Blessed Virgin Mary and masses for over twenty new feasts of saints ( for example St Pius of Pietrelcina/ Padre Pio Edith Stein Maximillian Kolbe).The new material is to be included in the missal so that it can be used in our celebrations. Secondly in 2001 the holy see issued new directives for the translations of the Latin texts. Translators were asked to make he English text follow more closely the original Latin in its wording and structure. They were also asked to strengthen the biblical language and images in the texts and to reintroduce some theological vocabulary that may have been lost over the years, across the English speaking world the new edition of the roman missal will therefore contain both new material and a new style of translation.
