A humorous reflection on the upcoming (Actually "in progress" in many diocese's) Changes to the English language version of the Roman mass.

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=93419478


Catholics Will No Longer Recite 'And Also With You'
by James Martin

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on Aug. 4 released the official text of a new English-language translation to the Roman Catholic Mass. It's the first time the Mass will change since the 1960s — though the changes will not take effect for a few years. Father James Martin, a Jesuit priest, reflects on the changes...

And the familiar refrain, "Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again"? That's been deleted.


I personally like that response, especially when sang using the same melody as the three amens at the end of the eucharistic prayer. When those two responses were done like that, I always thought they were two of the most reverent points during the mass.

Just my opinion.

I thought it was being changed to "and with your spirit", to repeat the Latin.

Also, I thought the translation took effect in the US this Advent, of which has already taken effect in the UK.


EDIT: And then I read the article....

Everything is supposed to officially kick off at the start of Advent (Nov. 26).  However some diocese's are allowing a limited introduction of the sung (Peoples parts) of the Mass as early as this month.  The entire missal text will not be in use yet.  This is going to create a huge amount of confusion, especially for people who attend a number of parishes in the course of a month (Myself for instance, plus my Mom goes to daily mass at a parish closer to her, and Sunday Mass at another).  With one parish doing one thing, another dragging their feet and each diocese doing the same, things will be somewhat confusing in American Catholicism, at least until Christmas time.

I imagine there will be a rush to print booklets and such, so the people have something from which to read. All the current missals and pamphlets that a parish may have, will have to be replaced. I imagine they'll start with printed handouts, and then there will be a run on new Mass books.  Smiley

Judging from the videos about the translation on the USSCB Youtube channel, ad populum is still the norm.

(Which I honestly don't understand; if the Vatican can facilitate a new and rather more traditional translation, I don't know why they can't do more to do more about these liturgical...issues.)

I get the impression that this "New Revised ICEL Liturgy" is basically the Novus Ordo (Lutheran Liturgy of 1904) with new frosting on top.

Yes, send in the missiles. ICEL has got to go.

I would love to see a return to the unabridged and unaltered 6th Century Latin Liturgy of Pope St. Gregory the Great complete with the Trisagion Hymn.

I've seen some version or other of the new translation, and my impression at the time was that it was fairly wooden and literalistic rendering of the Latin (e.g. the third response of the Sursum corda is something like "It is right and just"). I don't recall whether they moved away from the ICET texts, but I wouldn't be surprised; I gather some of the intent of all this is to be anti-ecumenical. Of course it does nothing to fix the lousy way that the liturgy is typically carried out in the USA.

I would also like to point out that "and also with you" was something they more or less inherited (via ICET) from the Episcopalians, who already had an English liturgy which they were rewriting in the same timeframe. The reason we had it was to try to remind people which rite they were in, except that it doesn't really work out that way: "and with thy spirit" has about the same rhythm, and the second response is only a syllable off, so the train wreck doesn't come until the third response. The Roman rite, of course, didn't have this issue to begin with; they ended up with it because at the time the various churches made a common attempt to translate the main texts the same way.

It's no mystery, it's online and official and it isn't that great of a translation if you ask me.  It lets out parts, doesn't change a whole lot and according to my grandfather, is a waste of money because all the parishes are going to have to spend uber-amounts of money buying new books.

Thanks for providing this pdf document.

Yes, this is a slightly modified NOVUS ORDO (ICEL rendition).

It is the Novus Ordo revised like a rotten cake with a fancier frosting.

I am praying that all the ICEL renditions of the Novus Ordo will be torpedoed and replaced with a devout and faithful translation (not a new ICEL rendition) of the 1962 Missal. It is time for the ICEL to be put to pasture.

Note: the ICEL has never engaged in trying to pursue a faithful translation. They have been rewording and engineering their new liturgies in a ungodly liturgical revolution that has never before happened in the Catholic Church. Witness that over 25,000,000 (25 million) Catholics have left the American Catholic Church between 1965 and 1990. That shows a tremendous loss of faith.

(I used to be a very devout Roman Catholic. However, with the liturgical revolutions spawned by the former Cardinal Mahony, my faith was shaken to the core. I am so grateful that the Holy Orthodox Church has maintained and preserved the Holy Faith once delivered by Christ to His Apostles.)

Ah, that 1962 thing. I'm not going to get into the issues of translation, other than to say that a good translation is generally not as faithful as some would have it. But the issue as you present it isn't really in translation: it's that you don't like the current Latin. You can see the 2002 revision of the latter here, and one can see that the English of the eucharistic prayers is translating the Latin with some accuracy if not well. However, the Latin of 2002 is very different in many places from the Latin of 1962, particularly in the prefaces (ironically these are some of the most conservatively revised parts of the 1979 ECUSA BCP).

Yes, but the Roman Missal post-Vatican II is a Lutheran-based liturgy.
The ICEL has been promoting Lutheran heretical ideas since their inception.

Vast improvement ... only in the eyes of the beholder.

This seems to be one of the tropes making the rounds now, but so far mostly what it seems to mean is "taking communion in the hand is bad", when as far as I can tell the rubrics say nothing at all about how communion is to be received.

One last time: I do not think you can blame the translators for this; indeed, inasmuch as you keep expressing a longing for the 1962 liturgy over the present Latin, you're implying that translation isn't really the issue.

I'm looking at the prefaces, where some of the most substantial differences between the 1962 and 2002 liturgies may be found, and what I see is that for the most part the 1979 ECUSA prefaces translate the 1962 texts (or more likely, their Sarum predecessors: the prefaces are some of the most conservatively revised section of the BCP). The 2002 prefaces are strikingly different in form. But does this have anything to do with Lutheranism? I suspect, in fact, that the differences may represent an urge toward differentiation.

Actually, I would like to see a return to the pre-schism Divine Liturgy of St. Gregory the Great (the one that had the Trisagion in it).

The Trisagion was removed sometime around 800 AD. when Roman Catholics wanted to get rid of any signs of Byzantium.
All that remained in Greek was the Kyrie Eleison.

Yes, but the Roman Missal post-Vatican II is a Lutheran-based liturgy.

This seems to be one of the tropes making the rounds now, but so far mostly what it seems to mean is "taking communion in the hand is bad", when as far as I can tell the rubrics say nothing at all about how communion is to be received.

Quote
The ICEL has been promoting Lutheran heretical ideas since their inception.

One last time: I do not think you can blame the translators for this; indeed, inasmuch as you keep expressing a longing for the 1962 liturgy over the present Latin, you're implying that translation isn't really the issue.

I'm looking at the prefaces, where some of the most substantial differences between the 1962 and 2002 liturgies may be found, and what I see is that for the most part the 1979 ECUSA prefaces translate the 1962 texts (or more likely, their Sarum predecessors: the prefaces are some of the most conservatively revised section of the BCP). The 2002 prefaces are strikingly different in form. But does this have anything to do with Lutheranism? I suspect, in fact, that the differences may represent an urge toward differentiation.


Actually, I would like to see a return to the pre-schism Divine Liturgy of St. Gregory the Great (the one that had the Trisagion in it).

The Trisagion was removed sometime around 800 AD. when Roman Catholics wanted to get rid of any signs of Byzantium.
All that remained in Greek was the Kyrie Eleison.
Dear sir;

Take your Hellenized Liturgy and have fun with it but not in Roman churches. I go to a church that follows the Greek Rite. I love it. Whenever I go to the Greek Rite, I serve in it. There's nothing wrong with it. But I am a Latin Rite Catholic, I went to a Missa Novi Ordinis today, celebrated ad orientem with Gregorian chant.

So take your Hellenizations and keep them out of the Roman churches, and we'll keep our rosaries and statues out of yours.

And who's to say that the Novus Ordo Missae is any less a true, apostolic liturgy than St. John Chrysostom? He was a great father of the church, no doubt - but his liturgy wasn't written by the apostles. Liturgies aren't written in stone; they can be changed. There's nothing wrong with it. Sometimes that change is a good thing.

But there's no reason to impose a change upon the Roman Rite Catholics, who have already had their liturgical life completely traumatized, by returning them to a heavily Hellenized Rite from over a millennium ago.

Ok. We'll take all copies of the Gospel of John back now.

Sometimes it's not. Ex: Novus Ordo.

The article linked below written by Dr. Lauren Pristas compares the old Roman Rite and the new Roman Rite liturgies, and tends to find the latter to be theologically impoverished:
