Thanksgiving and the Eucharist (2237)

Editorial from our Nov. 20 issue.

11/24/2011 Comments (1)

Just a couple of days after our national feast of Thanksgiving, Catholics in America will receive a tremendous gift, one for which we will certainly be thankful: a reorientation of our worship and a consequent deepening of faith, thanks to a newly translated Roman Missal.

Our focus on Thanksgiving at the dinner table will shift to thanksgiving — Eucharist, to use the Greek-derived word — at the table of the Lord.

The new edition of the Roman Missal, issued for the Jubilee Year of 2000, is finally coming to our parishes in a translation that, by all accounts, will be well worth the wait. The choice of words, dictated by a Vatican-ordered fidelity to the original Latin, places a much-needed...READ MORE

Vatican Conference Will Discuss How Blessed John Paul II Helped the Sick (6773)

President of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers: 'We have to give testimony to his life and suffering so that people can know the good that John Paul II did for sick people.'

11/23/2011 Comment

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—The life, death and legacy of Blessed Pope John Paul II will take center stage at an international conference for health-care workers that begins Nov. 24 in Rome.

“We really hope this great Pope, great in life, great in suffering, great in death, will, even after his death, live on in our hearts,” said Archbishop Zygmunt Zimowski, president of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers, in remarks to EWTN News.

“Because there is a new generation who only know him through books and through pictures,” Archbishop Zimowski explained, “we have to give testimony to his life and suffering so that people can know the good that John Paul II did for sick people.”

Pope Recalls Joyful and Hope-Filled Trip to Benin (10115)

Benedict says Africa is 'a reservoir of life and vitality' for the Church.

11/23/2011 Comments (2)

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—Pope Benedict said Nov. 23 that during his trip to the country of Benin this past weekend he saw that Africa is “a reservoir of life and vitality” for the Church and its future.

In keeping with tradition, the Pope offered his assessment of the Nov. 18-20 visit to Benin at today’s general audience, which was held in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall because of a winter rainstorm.

“In Africa I saw a freshness in the ‘Yes’ to life, a freshness of religious meaning and hope, a holistic vision of reality where God is not confined to that positivist perspective which, in the final analysis, extinguishes all hope,” he said.

“This tells us that the continent is a reservoir...READ MORE

Why the New Missal Will Be Good for the Mass (8492)

What marks these new texts? They are, I would argue, more courtly, more theologically rich, and more scripturally poetic than the current prayers — and this is all to the good.

In just a few days, Catholics in this country will notice a rather significant change when they come to Mass. Commencing the First Sunday of Advent, the Church will be using a new translation of the Roman Missal. I would like to emphasize, at the outset, that this in no way represents a return to “the old Mass,” for the Latin texts that provide the basis for the new translation were all approved after Vatican II. So why the change?  What had come increasingly to bother a number of bishops, priests and liturgists over the years was that the translation of the liturgical texts, which was made in some haste in the late ‘60s of the last century, was not sufficiently faithful to the Latin and...READ MORE

NEW YORK — Blind since birth, Kerri Regan has depended on special tools and training, as well as her own wits, to navigate a rapidly changing world. The 24-year old is thus prepared to handle the arrival of the new Roman Missal that is making its debut in Catholic parishes throughout the country this coming weekend.

A Braille reader who attended Catholic high school and earned an associate degree at Nassau Community College near her family’s home in the Diocese of Rockville Centre, Regan has obtained a “cheat sheet” that provides the new responses the faithful will say at Mass.

Similar materials are available to every Catholic, but Regan’s copy will be in Braille, so it will be too...READ MORE
