The first piece of advice I give people is: Don’t panic! I fear that the introduction of the revised Missal is being overly hyped by some organizations and publications and is leading people to expect a revolution in the Church’s liturgical life. No such revolution will materialize, and most changes in the new translation have to do with the prayers of the priest, not of the people.
Every parish should be undertaking some forms of preparation of the people for the new Missal, either at the announcement period at the end of Mass or by offering special adult education sessions. The best way to prepare is to continue to participate in the Mass as it is, attend any explanatory parish sessions and reflect on what the priest says about the revised Missal.
