Coming up to one month after the introduction of the 3rd Roman Catholic Missal in English, despite all the resistance and misgivings about the changes in the English words to be much more closer to the original Latin language did not become a reality. Rather than an overblown resistance, the response has been very much welcoming, including from this Catholic.
One month after the 3rd Edition of the Roman Missal in English, new English word additions such as “and with your spirit”, “consubstantial”, and using the words “I believe” for the liturgy of the mass, overall I come away in reflection that the holy sacrifice of the mass has become a much better prayerful experience for me. Also I question why all this fuss was made about what was for all needed purposes a great need to update the English wording not just to match up with that of the Latin language but also to bring back the need for prayer, mystery, and reverence for the holy mass by both the priests and the laity. Also these words reflect a return to the Biblical roots not only of the holy sacrifice of the mass, but of the Roman Catholic Church, which the Lord Jesus Christ founded it on the “rock” that is called the Apostle Peter.
Lastly, the new English word changes not only in turn,been both a blessing and renew the holy sacrifice of the mass for English-speaking Roman Catholic Christians, but it also has been for myself as a Christian and a Roman Catholic, a blessed spiritual of my own faith.
One of my favorite changes came with the new “Gloria” which has come to grow on me and in which I have come to love. My prayer is that, my brothers and sisters in Roman Catholic Church who were so very upset over the recent changes will let go of useless fear and embrace this new way to pray the holy mass. For those Catholics who only go to mass a few times a year will see the beauty of the changes and will feel drawn to come back to the Church. Overall, may the English-speaking Catholic faithful be also renewed in faith.
