Daily Mass Readings
Question from Manfred on 11/7/2001:

Given:

(a) that the NAB approved for Lectionary use is just plain awful; (b) the RSV used for readings on your site is NOT the Catholic Ed., and, even if it were, is no longer approved for Lectionary use; (c) Liturgiam Authenticam favors the Vulgate when original-language Scripture passages pose problems in translation; (c) that the DOUAI-RHEIMS Bible - translated, as all know, from the Vulgate - IS on your web site in its entirety;

why not use the DOUAI-RHEIMS for your Daily Mass Readings page?!

Answer by Colin B. Donovan, STL on 11/13/2001:

With small differences, the RSV is the same as the RSV-CE and is adequate for the purpose.

Otherwise, a) The RSV-CE is still approved, until the new Lectionary takes effect, b) this is a web site and not the Mass, so we could use any text we want, but prefer the RSV/RSV-CE for both contempory language and accuracy of translation, c) the Vulgate behind the Douai is not the Vulgate which is the basis of the current translation norms, anyway, which Vulgate is that approved in 1989 by JP2. :-)
