1 The New Roman Missal LTP- Liturgy Training Publications 2011
2 A Little Bit of HistoryThroughout history of the Church few changes have been madeNone of the changes effect the meaning of the MassEarly Church celebrated the ”Breaking of the Bread” then the Liturgy of the Word; Scripture, Psalms and instructionCelebrated in people’s homes until Emperor Constantine built churches
3 History Continued…..Mass was celebrated in Latin the language of the Roman EmpireAD Liturgy became more formal; priests began to wear vestments, incense, bells, genuflection were addedAD Council of Trent reformed Missal, Pope Pius V called for a standard missal for the Western Church
4 History Continued…..1962 – Present, Second Vatican Council outlined liturgical changes; including mass being said in both Latin and the vernacular or “mother tongue”The mass we experience today is the result of bishops, liturgists, and theologians who translated it from Latin to EnglishPrayers of the Roman Catholic Church always originate in Latin, there have been 3 editions of the Roman Missal, last one to be published in 2002
5 What Will the New Translation Do? Translators now have a firmer grasp of the meaning of the original texts and how we should prayThe goal is for our Missal to “accurately” translate the Latin without paraphrasingHelp better connect the words of the Mass to the Scripture readingsSome sentences in the prayers are longer and the vocabulary is more extensive
6 Translation continued… Two types of translation; formal equivalence (literal translation) and dynamic equivalence (seeks to get across the thought that is expressed in the text)New revision reflects dynamic approachThe goal is to make the translation more accurate
7 Prayers are more humble and acknowledge the majesty of God The process was guided by the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL). Eleven bishops from different countries around the worldNow we begin with the new parts of the mass! (changes are highlighted in orange)
8 I. The Introductory Rites Entrance Procession and Chant, the mass begins when we stand as a sign to honor GodWe believe Christ is present as our community begins its prayerMost churches sign a song or hymnWe reverence the altar by bowing because the altar is a symbol of Christ himself
9 The priest says the words for the Sign of the Cross, “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”, we respond “Amen”The gesture of signing is our way of saying we belong to GodSign of the cross reminds us that Jesus died on the cross for usNext is the Greeting where the priest welcomes the assembly, “Good morning”Then his greeting is formal as we enter into a holy time of prayer

14 Nicene CreedI believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
15 Nicene Creed cont.he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen
