Key changes to missal capture
original meanings By James Breig*
Casual observers of the Roman Catholic Church often
remark that it hasn’t changed in 2,000 years. Actually, just
like any living institution, it is constantly changing. Over the
centuries, where and when the Mass is celebrated, how saints
are chosen, and the method of electing popes are some of the
ways the Church has adjusted its traditions and policies.
Now come changes to the Roman Missal, the book
containing the prayers for the Mass. For years, the Church
has been working to more accurately translate those prayers
from the Latin in which the original Missal is promulgated
into modern languages, including English. Msgr. Kevin Irwin,
dean of the School of Theology and Religious Studies at The
Catholic University of America in Washington, says those
alterations were necessitated by two factors.
“First, the Committee charged with the English translation
of the Roman Missal issued the post-Vatican II translations very
quickly,” he notes, referring to the Second Vatican Council in
the 1960s. “They realized, after a few years’ use of the Missal,
that some translations should have been more accurate. Second,
some feasts have been added to the Church’s liturgical calendar
in recent years, for example, St. Padre Pio’s. Those Latin
Masses need to be translated into English.”
Peter Finn, associate director of the International
Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL), compares the
changes “to the cleaning of an old painting whose images
are brought to clearer light in the cleaning process. …The
translations have sought to achieve a suitable balance between
the word-for-word, literal meaning of the Latin and the
demands of good proclamation, style and intelligibility.”
One of the most significant
changes, Msgr. Irwin says, involves
the familiar phrase, “And also with
you,” which the congregation recites
after the celebrant of the Mass says,
“The Lord be with you.”
He explains that “the congregation
will now say, ‘and with your spirit.’
This places the English translation in
line with most other languages.”

Msgr. Anthony Sherman,
executive director of the U.S.
bishops’ Secretariat of Divine
Worship, offers another example: Instead
of saying “we believe” at the beginning of the Creed,
Catholics will soon recite, “I believe.” The reason for the shift,
he says, is “to underline the fact that, although we share our
belief together with our brothers and sisters, each one of us is
called to make an individual profession of faith.”
As the changes are introduced, parishioners will have many
guides to help them learn their new responses. “Plans are
underway by a number of publishers to print up Mass booklets
or cards containing the changes,” Msgr. Irwin notes. Adds
Msgr. Sherman: “Eventually all participation aids and hymnals
will include the new responses of the people.” Finn notes
that “today, the people’s responses can be made more readily
available not only in printed editions but also on websites, CDs,
iPhones etc.”
One Web site already available to help people become
familiar with the new translation of the Roman Missal is
sponsored by the U.S. Bishops:
Average Catholics may not immediately grasp the necessity
and benefits of the changes, Msgr. Irwin admits, but the
familiarity that comes with time should lead people to comfort
with and understanding of the words.
“All of us – laity, clergy and religious – will need to take
time to review the changed words and come to appreciate what
we may not have understood or appreciated before,” he says.
“There are layers of meaning to liturgical texts, not just one
meaning. These translations and the education we shall receive
before they are implemented will offer us a chance to ‘brush up’
our knowledge of the Mass and of our beliefs.”
Msgr. Sherman believes the changes “will invite the faithful
to pause and reflect on what, after so many years, we may have
taken for granted. People will listen more attentively to the
various prayers proclaimed by the priest and these will convey
a much deeper richness, which can be the basis for meditation
and prayer for the enrichment of one’s spiritual life.”

Help others in need– new ministry to help
feed those in need. We ask that families take
advantage of the BOGO (buy one get one)
offers at the local supermarkets, and donate
the second item to St Louis. They can be
dropped off in the bins located in the narthex of
the church. We will then collect them and store
them for others that come to the church office
in need of food. What a great way to help our
neighbors and set an example to those around
us to do the same!
We can also collect the perishable items
that are offered; all we ask for those items is
that arrangements be made in advance by
contacting Bob Friedlander 786-554-3420.

PRIMERA LECTURA (Exodo 22: 20-26)
La identificación con la comunidad de los pobres no es por sus cualidades
sino por sus necesidades. El pueblo debe entender que está siempre con
los más necesitados, porque ellos constituyen su pueblo no el que tiene el
título, sino la condición. La condición abre la sensibilidad y el corazón, el
título suele cerrarlo y hace perder la cabeza y la razón de ser.
SEGUNDA LECTURA (Tesalonicenses 1: 5-10)
La comunidad de Tesalónica, una de las primeras en escuchar
la predicación de Pablo, se ha convertido en un referente para otras
comunidades a las que Pablo también ha iniciado en la fe. Su experiencia
anima a Pablo. El se siente orgulloso y les anima a seguir en la dinámica
de comunidad abierta a la fe y la formación.
EVANGELIO (Mateo 22: 34-40)
La unión entre amor a Dios y amor al prójimo es, para Jesús, inseparable
e incuestionable. Dios ha unido su suerte a la de sus hijos. Esta unión da
fundamento indestructible a la relación humana y da vida práctica y contenido
a la fe religiosa. Sin Dios es muy difícil fundamentar el amor solidario. Sin
amor solidario y comprometido es muy difícil dar sentido y contenido histórico
al amor religioso y a Dios.

Pensamientos de Media Noche
On Tuesday evening at Immaculate
Conception Church in Hialeah, we celebrated the
Ring Mass for the Juniors at Monsignor Pace High
School. (I have been President of this high school in
north Dade for five years.) These Juniors will become
the Class of 2013. The rings they receive represent
their relationship with the school and with each other.
For four years they will experience a unique period of
growth, education, and formation. Their relationship
with each other and the school will significantly give
shape and direction to their future lives.
The scriptures we chose for the Mass all speak
of wisdom. The Old Testament Book of Wisdom
describes wisdom as a special gift form God. St. Paul
explained how God’s wisdom revealed in Christ, directs
people’s lives. Jesus in the Gospel from Matthew
taught the Beatitudes, the wisdom and values of the
High school students learn information, facts,
data about many different subjects. They become
more knowledgeable, intelligent; they know more with
their minds. But they need to learn more.
Wisdom is a different learning: not knowledge
in the head but in the heart, not facts and information,
but values and directions in life. Some intelligent
people may lack wisdom, while those with lesser IQ’s
may be very wise.
Intelligent people might create weapons of
mass destruction; wise people know how to avoid
using them.
Intelligent people can profit from fraud and
greed; wise people understand honesty.
We pray for wisdom for these young high
school students. They must make decisions not only
about where they will go to college but also about the
direction they will go in life. We are grateful for schools
like Msgr. Pace and St. Louis, both in the Covenant
School and the CCD; they teach wisdom– so lacking
and so necessary in our world.
In Christ,
El martes en la noche, en la Iglesia de la Inmaculada
Concepción de Hialeah se celebró la Misa de los Anillos para
los “juniors” de la Escuela Superior Monsignor Pace. (Yo
he sido el Presidente de ésta escuela superior en el norte de
Dade por cinco años.) Estos jóvenes serán los graduados de
la Clase 2013. El anillo que reciben representa su relación
con la escuela y con sus compañeros. La experiencia de
estos cuatro años es un período único de crecimiento,
educación y formación. Su relación con sus compañeros y
con la escuela es lo que les dará formación y dirección en
el futuro.
Las lecturas escogidas para la Misa todas hablaban
de sabiduría. El Libro de la Sabiduría del Antiguo Testamento
describe la sabiduría como un don especial de Dios. San
Pablo explica como la sabiduría de Dios se revela en Cristo
en cómo toca la vida de las personas. En el Evangelio de
Mateo, Jesús habla de las Beatitudes, la sabuduría y los
valores del reino.
Los estudiante de escuela superior aprenden
información, hechos reales, datos sobre diferentes
tópicos. Esto los convierte en personas más inteligentes y
conocedoras; saben mán con sus mentes. Pero necesitan
aprender más.
La sabiduría es un aprendizaje diferente: no es saber
con la cabeza sino con el corazón, no datos e información,
sino valores y dirección en la vida. Algunas personas muy
inteligentes carecen de sabiduría, mientras que aquellos
con menos IQ posiblemente son más sabios.
Personas inteligentes pueden crear armas de
destrucción masiva; personas sabias saben como evadir el
uso de las mismas.
Personas inteligentes se pueden beneficiar del
fraude y la avaricia; las personas sabias comprenden la
Oremos para que la sabiduría se apodere de estos
jóvenes estudiantes. Ellos tienen que tomar decisiones
sobre a qué Colegio deben asistir, pero sobre todo
qué dirección deben tomar en sus vidas. Estamos muy
agradecidos de escuelas como Monsignor Pace y St. Louis,
tanto la Escuela Covenant como el CCD; ellos enseñan
sabiduría - tan escasa y tan necesaria en este mundo.
En Cristo,
