Checking In

Greetings from hiatus, gang -- a ton of thanks for the notes; everything's fine... really. (For once in my life it's nice to look (and feel) like something other than an electrocuted albino, so the breather's paying its dividends.)

More on the notes later. But in the meantime (and of much greater import), the recently-recognitioed texts of the revised Order of Mass have been revealed by the USCCB -- the complete "White Book" is available in PDF.

(Yes, "consubstantial" is there. As is "dewfall." "Pro multis" is, indeed, rendered as "for many"... but, alas, "deign" didn't make the cut.)

As previously noted, the Rome-approved OM will be the "binding" liturgical text for the entire English-speaking world; an evolving conference site has more on the changes, anticipated for rollout in late 2011 at the earliest.

Happy Reading and all the blessings of August -- hope everything's goin' great.
