New Roman Missal Translation in a Nutshell

New Roman Missal Translation: Just to be clear, when I say in a “Nutshell,” I am not calling Mark Hart a “nut.” Mark is one of the best modern communicators of our faith. This video is by far the best summary I have seen on the new translation. It was created for teens but the humorous approach should make this interesting for anyone. If you like it, pass this post along to help others gain a better understanding of the changes that are just around the corner.

New Roman Missal Translation


PS: In anticipation of complaints from those who love the Liturgy as I do, I am most definitely not a fan of how I have seen the so-called “Life Teen Mass” implemented. However, I believe that Mark's involvement with Life Teen will result in significant improvements. The purpose of this post is not to discuss Life Teen but to rejoice in the new translation … my combox moderation will be consistent with this intent. I pray that all in the English speaking world with be profoundly blessed by this significant improvement in our translation.

    Fantastic Video, Mark. And thank you RCSpirutal Direction Team for this Post. This old Granny is thrilled to go back to the Holy Mass of her Quarter and a Piece of her life. I must find out from my brother back in the countryside whether he still has my late Father’s Missal which was in Latin and on the opposite Page, the exact Latin/English translation which has just come back in the New Missal. Yes, Mark, the Holy Spirit has been hard at work inspiring this great Spiritual Work. + Laudetur Iesus Christus +

    AWESOME!  the whole world should see it!

    I was stunned when Hart said he didn’t know why the Holy Spirit chose this time to have us change the Mass. Really? The will of God is perfect, so this must be the perfect time for it.

      I think that his point w/that comment was to those who are whining or complaining about the changes. Also, that one tiny comment was followed immediately by his saying that God knows what is best for us in this age & in EVERY age…he wasn’t questioning God, just explaining “why now” to those who are questioning these changes. God bless!!!

  • Okay I have to admit that I was suspicious about the New Roman Missal before. But after watching this video I can hardly wait! But I also heard the New Roman Missal will be released a year later in other countries including the Philippines…
