The International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) met in Mumbai last week, planning to complete the revised draft of the Roman Missal by its next meeting in September.
The January 14-18 meeting revised translations from the 2002 edition of the Missale Romanum. The revisions were made after comments were received from English-speaking bishops’ conferences and from the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship.
The eleven bishops of the commission also concelebrated Mass with Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Mumbai during the meeting.
The ICEL Commission is planning their next meeting in Vancouver, Canada in September 2008, at which it expects the entire revised draft translation of the Roman Missal to be completed. The draft will then be submitted to bishops’ conferences for “further processing and eventual publication.”
