I hope that your week has been a good one.
Thanks for your responses to yesterday's post. Opinions obviously vary rather widely on many of the issues associated with the implementation of the new translation.
On the new survey we have posted on WLP's web site, I have found some interesting facts as I have looked at the results. With over 800 responses received, here's how some of the statistics look.
Here's one question: "At this point, how prepared is your parish for this change/implementation of the new English translation of The Roman Missal?"
And here are the statistics:
7.5% say they are very prepared
33.4% say that they are somewhat prepared
31.8% say that they are not very prepared
19.4% say that they are not prepared at all
12.4% indicated "other" in their response
Obviously, these statistics will shift the closer we get to the actual implementaion. But the numbers do indicate that there is quite a bit of work to accomplish as we move through these next months. The implementation date is 10 months from yesterday.
How prepared is your parish?
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
