Days for Readers looking at the new translation of the Lectionary.

These days are for those of every level of experience who proclaim the Scriptures at Sunday or Weekday Mass. The day will provide an opportunity to look at the background of why we are going to use a new translation of the Scriptures at Mass. We shall look at the steps to be taken to be ready to proclaim the Word of God with confidence and clarity using this new edition. The new edition of the Lectionary will come into use in England and Wales on the first Sunday of Advent 2024.

The Lectionary, which is the book that contains the Scripture readings for Mass and the Sacraments, is changing as part of the continuing process of revising liturgical translations. The process began with the Roman Missal in 2011 and has continued with all the other liturgical texts. The new Lectionary will use the English Standard Version – Catholic Edition of the Bible and the Abbey Psalter. The changes are intended to make the biblical translations more faithful to the original languages, biblical scholarship, and to provide a text for use in liturgical setting that is more proclaimable and, where appropriate, more inclusive.” – CTS Books.
