The Diocese of Des Moines
Recognitio, Recognitio: 2 Major Developments
April 29, 2010
Written By: Kyle Lechtenberg

The Holy See has granted the recognitio, or approval, of two significant liturgical texts in recent days--or hours, really, in the case of the latter: 


1. The new translation of the Grail Psalter, which will become the official translation of the Psalms for liturgical use, was approved by the Holy See on April 13. 

2.  News that the new translation of the 3rd edition of the Roman Missal was approved by the Holy See was released this morning. See the blog post at Whispers in the Loggia today for the most complete information available. A previous post gives some background information. 


The next step in the process for both texts is for the USCCB to release information on when the texts will be used.  More information here at this blog and, as always, at Whispers in the Loggia!


Watch here and at the diocesan website for details on our diocesan plan for liturgical formation regarding the new missal. Save to
