New Mass, Same as the Old?

  • "People have said that they really appreciate the greater fidelity that the new prayers embody, and they like the more formal or 'higher' tone that it carries across," said Father Daniel Merz, associate director of the U.S. bishops' Secretariat for Divine Worship, noting especially the "sense of reverence and poetry" — Patience with new translation expected to pay dividends.

  • "I think the new translation is very much like the old one, from way back when I was first at church, pre-Vatican II, except it's not in Latin," said parishioner Mary Griffith— Despite a few 'rough spots,' Catholics adapt to new missal translation. Said John Fleming, 90, "I got out all my old missals from when Latin was on one side and English on the other and it seems more like what I used to say a long time ago."
