The Chicago Tribune is reporting on how Catholics in the Archdiocese of Chicago are preparing for the revisions to the Roman Missal, which will be implemented Nov. 27.
"We're encouraging parishes to begin a long-range plan as people start to learn these responses by heart again," Todd Williamson of the archdiocese's Office for Divine Worship told reporter Manya Brachear.
Several sources pointed out how much more reverent the language is in the new translation. Here's what Father Steve Lanza of St. Julie Billiart Catholic Church in Tinley Park said:
"What we're doing in church in these prayers is addressing the ultimate mystery with a capital 'M' and addressing ultimate love with a capital 'L.' "So there is a little more complexity in the phrasing. We're not addressing something that is ordinary. We're looking at something extraordinary here."
