About this DVD:
In anticipation of the new English translation of the third edition of the Roman Missal, we are pleased to offer a new DVD featuring Rev. Msgr. James P. Moroney, Executive Secretary of the Vox Clara Committee (created by the Holy See in 2002 to advise the Congregation of Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments on the translation of Roman Catholic liturgical books into English). Msgr. Moroney gives a refreshing introduction to the historical background of the Roman Missal, explaining why these translations are important and how they developed. He also takes an in-depth look at the changes to various Mass prayers, including the Confiteor (“I Confess to Almighty God…”), the Gloria (“Glory to God in the Highest…”), and the Ecce Agnus Dei (“Behold the Lamb of God…”).
This DVD is a helpful guide for bishops, priests, deacons, seminarians, and the laity, providing a fertile ground in which to develop a new and insightful appreciation for the Sacred Liturgy and the rich, authentic text of the new English translation, as well as serving as a useful tool for pastoral preparation and catechesis of the lay faithful.
