With One Voice
Translation and Implementation of the Roman Missal
Lead your parish to a deeper understanding of the new Roman Missal.
"The changes in the translation of the new Roman Missal will occur. That is a given. But what is not given is how we will prepare priests, deacons and people for those changes. The preparation is critical for how the changes will be received"
—Most Reverend Arthur J. Serratelli; Bishop of Paterson, New Jersey; Chair of the USCCB Committee on Divine Worship
Develop catechesis to prepare your parish
Commissioned by the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions (FDLC), this insightful collection of essays gives parish leaders—both clergy and lay ecclesial ministers—a grasp on what the changes are, why the changes are being made and how to prepare their community. Featuring contributions from respected liturgical experts, With One Voice is conveniently divided into four chapters—each dedicated to a specific theme.
Foster liturgical renewal
Most Reverend Gerald F. Kicanas suggests strategies for easing through this transition and working toward a richer celebration of the Liturgy. Providing a canonical perspective, Reverend John J.M. Foster discusses the roles and responsibilities of those most directly involved in the implementation of the Roman Missal. Very Reverend Mark Francis delves into the foundation of liturgical renewal: "active participation." Finally, Reverend Paul Turner breaks down the process of translating liturgical texts into vernacular languages.
Lead the faithful to a deeper relationship with God
Although some of the words and phrases we speak during liturgy are changing, the structure of the Mass remains the same. Engaging and accessible, With One Voice is a practical tool for successfully leading the faithful toward a fuller understanding of the new translation... and the opportunity it presents to deepen our personal and communal relationship with God.
