Two Petitions about the New Translation of the Roman Missal

Here is something for you... Are you for or against the new English translation of the Roman Missal?

Two petitions are online to give you an opportunity to express your opinion.

There is a website petition that seeks a review of the new translation. It is called:

"What If We Just Said Wait"

In response to this petition, a new website was set up this morning for those who believe the translation should be enacted as soon as possible.

"We've Waited Long Enough"

You can't say I am not giving equal time to both sides of this question!

Examples of the changes in the new edition of the Roman Missal

If you haven't already investigated the website discussing the new Roman Missal, take a look here.

Don't miss this section: Examples of the Priest's Parts, as well as the Congregation's Parts. It's very well done and worth a look.
