A Guide to the New Translation of the Mass Booklet
The “whats” and the “whys” behind the new translation!
A Guide to the New Translation is a low-cost, handy question-and-answer booklet that addresses the important changes that have taken place in the Liturgy. The new responses of the Mass are laid out in an easy-to-follow format, while questions about the reasons for the changes are answered and explained. This booklet offers the “whats” and the “whys” of the new translation. This low-cost booklet is just what you need to understand why the Mass has changed, and what those changes are.
Included is an invaluable tear-out reference card that details the old vs. the new prayers and responses for the laity. Perfect for use during the Liturgy.

This short pamphlet is a handy companion to Dr. Sri’s other book on the Mass, but it’s a much briefer, to-the-point handbook. It’s short (about 20 pages), cheap, and it not only lists the new changes to the liturgy but explains the `why' behind each one as well.
Sri wrote his “Guide to the New Translation of the Mass” (Ascension Press) in question-and-answer format and includes many of the most common inquiries: Why do we need a new translation? What are some of the benefits of the new translation? Why did “we believe” change to “I believe”? But if you just want a short guide to the upcoming changes in the liturgy, this is the one you want.

Excellent, but simple way to get the new information and make it a part of your worship. Parents and kids can do this together. Fun. No hassle.

As per author Edward Sri, “The essence of the Mass is not changing, but the way it is celebrated will be noticeably different”. I am particularly intrigued by changes in the wording of the translation of the Nicene Creed.
