Blessings of the New Translation

I was lifted up this morning, when Fr Allan – who celebrates the Thursday Mass at Carmel – used the new translation from the Preface onwards, complete with the Preface for Martyrs II and the Roman Canon.  It was glorious to hear in English what I am used to in the Latin – since for many years I used to make up for the impoverished ICEL paraphrase by reading along in the original.  What a great blessing to be delivered from banality and feel the holiness of the Sacrifice so much more evidently manifest in the words of our prayers!  Deo gratias.
