Editors’ note: This article examines the Received Text, i.e., the text of the English Missal which the Pope received on April 28, and which had been granted recognitio (Roman approval) on March 25. It seems that further changes were made to this text before it was sent out as the final approved text, e.g., to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishop in August. There are unconfirmed rumors that further changes are now being made to this latest final version. Whatever the most recent state of textual revision, and however much the Received Text continues to be improved, it remains relevant to examine the Received Text and to ask how it came to be.
