The case for a grassroots review of the new Roman Missal ?
The “What If We Just Said Wait?” initiative imploring our bishops to slow down the implementation of the new Roman Missal recently reached another milestone: 13,000 signatures and counting!
7,200 lay people
2,265 lay ministers
3,882 priests, deacons and religious
Please help us reach another milestone, 20,000 signatures, by forwarding making it known to friends and colleagues and helping to spread the word about this initiative. Many people have asked what they can do to help. Here are some possibilities:
Discuss the issue with Catholic friends and colleagues (most are still totally unaware that new translations are on the way!)
Share your concerns with your pastor and bishop,
If you serve on a diocesan or parish council, consider raising the issue of the new translation for discussion there,
Encourage those who are still studying the issue to explore the extensive web resources available at http://www.whatifwejustsaidwait.org/
Above all, pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance. As one of our signers commented, “Prayer is the greatest petition!"
Thank you for your continued support. May the coming holy season of Lent be a time of grace and renewal for our Church.
