Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
Thank you Father.I wonder if you are able to bring us more of this or even the complete text.How well this is put and how good it is that we are not spoken down to.I would be interested to hear what arguments are put against this. I suspect that they really come down to dislike of the Latin text and the theology of it. But I would like to know.
He strikes me of being on uncertain ground. At Mass different things are happening: reading, speaking, listening but also silence. In addition we have the refusal to join in reading, speaking and listening for different reasons - illness, mother tending children, fatigue, loss of concentration and so on. How can one possibly prepare a translation with so many different human responses? Why are these priests trying to turn us into seminarians? You make the sacrifice reverend Fathers and please leave us alone!
What a superb commentary.Thanks!
Now everyone's an expert!Only joking. But the more people who start digging into the history of our ancient Roman Rite (both priests and laity) and discovering its rich heritage, the more the Church will be drawn into a better understanding and love of her worship.
Complete text of the new translation of the Order of Mass is at the following website:http://www.usccb.org/romanmissal/
Someone had trouble with the video and only got the embed text with the link to Gloria TV. Is anyone else having this problem? (Please say which browser you are using if so.)
Only the embed code; Firefox 3.6.3. Many thanks for all the good work you do, Father!
I'll contact Mgr Harbert to ask if the complete text is available.
