Via Gerald is some good news indeed.
LOS ANGELES – The nation’s Roman Catholic bishops signed off Thursday on a new English translation for the Mass that would change prayers ingrained in the memories of millions of American parishioners.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops voted at its biannual meeting for a new translation after a brief but vigorous debate over several small changes in wording. The 173-29 vote on the Order of the Mass was aimed at satisfying Vatican calls for a translation that’s closer to the Latin version.
So this was no close vote that would have further delayed the changes. It does not take a prophet to figure out who some of the 23 dissenting votes were. The majority more than likely saw the writing on the wall that were not going to be able to continue delay or make any changes that would pass muster at the Vatican.
I remember a couple years back my pastor complaining about the English translations in the Mass and how inferior they were and it looks like every passage he pointed out to me has been corrected. So let us see if the prophets of doom are right and that this will cause "chaos and real problems" in the Church.
