Catholic News Agency launches new Roman Missal reource site
Catholic News Agency has launched a comprehensive and user-friendly resource page to help prepare the U.S. faithful for the new Roman Missal translation.
“This new page shows why CNA has become the leading source for authentically Catholic news on the web,” editor-in-chief David Scott said Sept. 20.
The new site, http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/Missal/, provides news coverage, official statements, educational tools and extended reflections on the Mass from both a priestly and lay perspective.
Catholics can also get step-by-step instruction on the missal changes, which are set to be fully implemented nationwide by the beginning of Advent, Nov. 27, of this year.
“This a great service to the universal Church. It brings together in one place the finest resources available — from bishops, priests, and lay people — to help pastors and people in the pews prepare for this important new phase in the liturgical renewal,” Scott said.
He noted that the site also has the most comprehensive collection of original speeches and writings on the new missal from members of the Church hierarchy, such as Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Philadelphia and Archbishop Jose H. Gomez of Los Angeles.
