News about the Third Edition of the Roman Missal

On August 20, 2010, Cardinal Francis George, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, announced to the membership that the final text of the Roman Missal has been received. The Roman Missal, Third Edition, had earlier received a recognitio from the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. First use of the new text of the new Roman Missal will be on the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011. Consult for more information, including the final text of the revised Order of Mass.

In the coming weeks, the Secretariat of Divine Worship will be working with the staff of the International Commission on English in the Liturgy to prepare the texts for publishers. GIA will work with the Secretariat and ICEL on the final texts, making any necessary changes to the mass settings we have in production, and begin making the settings available as soon as we are able to do so.

Consult GIA's website in the coming weeks for further developments.

Why was this revision necessary and is it going to be so different from the present rite?
