Four parts of the US bishops’ liturgy translations have passed the mail vote, CNS reports today. What was covered on the snail mail agenda:
(P)refaces for the Mass for various occasions; votive Masses and Masses for the dead; solemn blessings for the end of Mass; and prayers over the people and eucharistic prayers for particular occasions, such as for evangelization or ordinations.
I thought I had counted five Missal sections failing to pass muster of those present last month in Texas, but it seems the last two listed (by CNS’s June count) were packaged into one, according to July. If you’re curious as to the current timetable, the USCCB has it here. In November the bishops will review the Proper of Saints and the Common of Saints, along with propers for US dioceses. Then the bishops’ work will enter the next stage: catechesis of and diplomacy with pastors and laity.
