And now someone has leaked the Revised Grail Psalter in its 2008 version.

“Are the Words of the Liturgy Worn Out? What Diagnosis? What Pastoral Approach?” is the title of Louis-Marie Chauvet’s 2009 Godfrey Diekmann, O.S.B., Award Response to the members of the North American Academy of Liturgy in Baltimore. I’ve quoted some paragraphs in support of Fritz Bauerschmidt’s brilliant post.
My impression, based on spending far too much time on the Internet, is that one of the arguments people make in favor both of Latin and of the forthcoming new English translation of the Mass is that the elevated, complex or just plain obscure nature of these linguistic forms is somehow better suited that plainer vernacular language for conveying a sense of “mystery” that is appropriate to the sacred liturgy.
I’m not sure why all these leaks are happening now – maybe the leaks of U.S. diplomatic cables are inspiring someone. Maybe the CDW can commiserate with the U.S. State Department.

As the late spring slides into early summer, and the new Church year begins, the colour purple dotting the landscape of Sydney is a natural reminder of Advent.
His Eminence Cardinal Ranjith was welcomed back to his homeland, Sri Lanka, in great style.
The leakage continues. Now someone has put up the Order of Mass – Final UK at WikiSpooks. Note, this document includes lots of prefaces. And if this is the final version for the UK, presumably it’s the final version for the rest of us too.
