The Catholic Church is ever changing and discovering itself in how she teaches and brings forth the mission Christ designed her for. No dogma or teachings are changed, no! Just how it is brought to the people. As a living, human entity, the Catholic Church is constantly learning about the past and ways to reach the people of God. To quote this booklet:
"The third edition of the Roman Missal in Latin was published in 2002. Our current translation dates to 1973, and some parts of the Mass first appeared in English as early as 1970. After a generation of usage, the translation we know well is being revised to reflect the current Latin edition.I completely agree after reading these changes, I can't wait to share more with you. Until next week.
Translators now have a better sense of how to achieve desired results. They have a firmer grasp of the meaning of the original texts and of the demands of oral proclamation. The revised translations will have more depth. As people say and hear the new words, they should appreciate even more the value of the faith they hold so dear."
