Pope receives copy of complete English translation of Roman Missal

By Carol Glatz Catholic News Service

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Pope Benedict XVI received a final version of the English translation of the complete Roman Missal, the book of prayers used at Mass.

He received the bound missal during a luncheon April 28 with members of the Vox Clara Committee, an international group of bishops established to advise the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments about the translation of the Roman Missal into English.

He welcomed the news that the English translation would soon be ready for general publication. Committee members expect the missal will be in parishes by the beginning of Advent 2011.

Pope John Paul II promulgated the Latin edition of the Roman Missal in 2002.

The International Commission on English in the Liturgy, a body established by English-speaking bishops' conferences, translated the Latin text into English.

The Vatican worship congregation established Vox Clara in 2001 to provide advice about English translations of liturgical texts.
