Welcome to this celebration of "New Translation Thursday."
OK folks, the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time is this coming Sunday and the Collect is one that we have discussed at length on this blog:
O God, who show the light of your truth
to those who go astray,
so that they may return to the right path,
give all who for the faith they profess
are accounted Christians
the grace to reject whatever is contrary to the name of Christ
and to strive after all that does it honor.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
For me, this was one of the newly translated prayers that I found hard to comprehend.
So, a challenge to you all. Listen very carefully to this prayer at Mass on Sunday and let's talk next Tuesday about how well the meaning was conveyed. Sound like a plan?
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
