New Liturgical Era Begins Sunday For Roman Catholics

This Sunday, millions of Roman Catholics in English-speaking countries will begin reciting a new set of prayers during the celebration of Mass.

That’s when a new translation of those prayers, the Roman Missal, goes into effect.

Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz says clergy and parishioners alike have long been preparing for the changes.

“I like to say that good habits quickly become routine and then they quickly become ruts. And so taking a step back gives us a chance to in a sense restore good habits as to what the liturgy is.” Kurtz told WFPL.
