U.S. Bishops Approve New Mass Translation

LOS ANGELES, JUNE 16, 2006 ( The U.S. bishops approved a new English translation for the Mass that is closer to the original Latin.

Prelates voted 173-29 Thursday at their semiannual meeting in favor of the new translation, which must go to offices in the Holy See for final approval. The process could still take years.

The new translation alters the wording of key texts including the Nicene Creed, the Gloria, the penitential rite and the Sanctus.

The prayer said before Communion would become "Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof," instead of "Lord, I am not worthy to receive you."
