Appreciating the New Translations

Here is the this week’s bulletin article on the new translation of the Roman Missal. 

After the Penitential Rite comes the ‘ancient hymn of praise,’ “The Gloria.”  At first glance, it may seem to have changed a lot.  What has changed is the order of the words.  The order of the words for the first six lines is very different but it is mostly the same words.  The word order simply repeats the order in Latin which emphasizes our action to praise, bless, adore, and glorify God for all the wonderful things he has done for us.
