A primer on the new English translation of the Roman Missal was launched today in preparation for its implementation late next year.
The primer, published by the Episcopal Commission on Liturgy , was written by Father Anscar J. Chupungco and will be sold for 100 pesos (US$2.33)
Father Chupungco said the primer explains major changes in the translation and offers analysis and catechesis.
“The text to be discussed is shown in Latin and in the 1973 and 2010 English translations. This facilitates quick comparison between the Latin text and its translations.”
The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines voted for the adoption of the new translation during its plenary assembly in January.
The Vatican approved the translation for use in the Philippines beginning December 2 next year.
The new translation of the Roman Missal, which will contain changes to some familiar responses and prayers in the English Mass, will be released in June next year, Father Chupungco said.
