On Sunday, November 27, the First Sunday of Advent, we began using the revised ritual text containing prayers and instructions for the celebration of the Mass.
New Words: A Deeper Meaning, But the Same Mass
The way we pray, the words and gestures we use in worship, are extremely important to our identity as Catholics. Since early 2011, we at St. Matthew's have been preparing to implement New Words: A Deeper Meaning, But the Same Mass – The Roman Missal, Third Edition, the ritual text containing prayers and instructions for the celebration of the Mass. We began using the New Roman Missal on Sunday, November 27, 2011, the First Sunday of Advent.
