Missal History

Hi Everyone,
I hope and pray all of you on the east coast survived the storm.

A little (but not a lot) off topic today. We all know a new --and better--translation of the mass is coming our way this Advent. But even a superior translation can take getting used to if the mass you have loved is suddenly changed, and you have to work to memorize, and come to appreciate, the new words and phrases. I know, because I went through all of this in 1970, and I was one annoyed little eleven year old.

If any of you did not catch the article I wrote about this experience in Faith&Family Magazine this summer, you can now read it on the website. Here's the link if you are interested.
