New Mass translation disliked by US priests and laypeople
The December U.S. Catholic looks at the new missal’s first year in “Words Fail Us.” It’s a rather devastating critique of the whole thing. Their online survey was completed by 1,231 priests and 1,208 laypeople.
Just 58% of the priests checked: “I dislike the new translations and still can’t believe I’ll have to use them for the foreseeable future.” Only four per cent say: “I was unsure about it at first, but I’ve grown accustomed to the new translations.” Only nine per cent say “I personally enjoy the new translations as much as, if not more than, the old version.”
