The Corrected Translation of the Mass

The Bishop of Leeds, Bishop Arthur Roche, who is the chairman of the International Commission for English in the Liturgy (ICEL) says this about the corrected translation of the Mass, that much of the English speaking world will begin in Advent:

“In the new translation we find a text that is more faithful to the Latin text and therefore a text which is richer in its theological content and allusions to the scriptures but also a translation which, I believe, will move people’s hearts and minds in prayer.”
In the SOLT parish of the Virgin Mother of Good Counsel, Hythe, Kent, England, a four part catechesis at Sunday Masses was conducted August 28th, September 4th, 11th, and 18th, as the dioceses of England and Wales had started using the corrected translation in September.  Here are blog entries and audio homilies from the assistant priest of the parish, Fr Samuel Medley, SOLT.  NB: They also include the Sunday Homily for the readings of that day.
