Ninth Sunday of the Year A 6th March 2011

This process is to help the Church in Westminster prepare to receive and use fruitfully the new edition of the Roman Missal and its new English translation. We introduced in this space last week the fact that from September we will using new prayers AND NEW RESPONSES during Mass.

There will be sermons every four weeks, accompanied by leaflets, focuses on our understanding of the Mass and how we pray it. Then, from July, Praying the Mass will begin to introduce the new translations and musical settings of the Missal texts. A DVD and other resources will also be made available. A video introduction to the process can be seen on the internet at

Praying the Mass seeks to
• promote worthy celebration of the Roman Rite in the parishes and schools of the Diocese
• provide a very clear explanation of forthcoming changes to the Missal (especially to the Ordinary of the Mass)
• ensure that this clarity of explanation and depth of reasoning is shared with the faithful by way of a gradual process of introduction.

During his recent State Visit to the United Kingdom Pope Benedict said
I encourage you now to seize the opportunity that the new translation offers for in-depth catechesis on the Eucharist and renewed devotion in the manner of its celebration. “The more lively the eucharistic faith of the people of God, the deeper is its sharing in ecclesial life in steadfast commitment to the mission entrusted by Christ to his disciples”(Sacramentum Caritatis, 6). 19th September 2010
