Samples of the New Latinized Missal translations

The new translation of the Roman Missal affect virtually every aspect of our prayer language, from the people’s responses to the collects to the Eucharistic Prayers. Some examples:

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.

The Lord be with you.
And with your spirit.

I confess to almighty God,
and to you, my brothers and sisters,
that I have sinned
through my own fault,
in my thoughts and in my words,
in what I have done,
and in what I have failed to do;
and I ask blessed Mary, ever virgin,
all the angels and saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters,
to pray for me to the Lord, our God.

I confess to almighty God
and to you, my brothers and sisters,
that I have greatly sinned
in my thoughts and in my words,
in what I have done
and in what I have failed to do,
through my fault, through my fault,
through my most grievous fault;
therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,
all the Angels and Saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters,
to pray for me to the Lord our God.

One of the collects from the Easter Vigil
Even today we see the wonders
Of the miracles you worked long ago.
You once saved a single nation from slavery,
And now you offer that salvation to all
through baptism.
May the peoples of the world
become true sons of Abraham
and prove worthy of the heritage of Israel.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

O God, the splendor of your ancient wonders
remains undimmed before our eyes today,
since what you bestowed on a single people,
freeing them from Pharaoh’s persecution
by the power of your right hand,
you now perform for the salvation of the nations
through the waters of rebirth:
grant that all the world may become
children of Abraham
and pass over into the dignity of Israel.
Through Christ our Lord.
