USCCB will gather for their annual Spring General Assembly, June 13-14

Slowly the Liturgy of the Hours will be revised and updated, perhaps even in our lifetime.
Among the topics scheduled for discussions will be the Liturgy of the Hours:
"Discussion and votes will also be proposed regarding new translations of various components of the Liturgy of the Hours including certain antiphons and intercessions. This will be one of several votes due to occur for this project over the next few years. Translations of the Liturgy of the Hours Grail Psalms have already been approved for U.S. dioceses.    
Added discussion and votes will occur regarding supplementary materials for the Roman Missal and the Liturgy of the Hours for the feast days of Saints John Paul II, John XXIII, and Mary Magdalene."


  1. "This will be one of several votes due to occur for this project over the next few years." Everything in Church time!

    Of course, it's good that they're making progress with this gargantuan task, and I appreciate their transparency about its progress. By comparison, no one has any idea what the years-long holdup is with the approval of our Daily Office in the Ordinariate. All the texts are done...

  2. Tom, do you remember it took two years to approve the Revised Grail Psalter and it came back with unlisted changes?

    1. No, I don't know much about the history behind that. I'm guessing the RG "Liturgical Psalters" on sale on Amazon will not match word for word what will end up being in the LOTH 2.0 then?

    2. As DJT might tweet, "Sad!"
