What's the Word: The new missal in effect

November 18, 2011
On November 27th, the First Sunday of Advent, the new Roman Missal goes into effect. Apart from finding out what parts of the Mass will change, we dig deeper and find out how our liturgical celebration is enriched by the new translation.
So we went straight to the source and invited the experts. We engage in an edifying discussion with the Most Rev. Albert LeGatt, who is both the Archbishop of Saint Boniface and the Canadian delegate for the International Commission on English in the Liturgy, along with Fr. Bill Burke, the director of the National Liturgy Office of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops. Together they introduce us to the changes and clarify how they assist our prayer.
Join us tonight on Perspectives: The Weekly Edition at 7:00 and 11:00pm ET / 8:00pm PT.
