Received startling news from my inside sources at the Vatican this morning. Apparently the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has reversed its decision and, beginning on Pentecost Sunday of this liturgical year, a special indult will be in place for dioceses throughout the English-speaking world. The indult will allow for the celebration of the Mass using the 1998 rejected ICEL translation.
Of course, this presents a nightmare for a publisher of worship resources for the Church. We are scrambling here to create a side-by-side resource, with the current translation of The Roman Missal, third edition, on one side and the 1998 ICEL translation on the other.
We have been trying to think about a name for the resource. Perhaps the words April and Fools should be in its title?
Happy Spy Wednesday!
Gotta Sing. Gotta pray.
