POPE RECEIVES NEW ROMAN MISSAL

VATICAN, (CWNews.com) -- Pope John Paul II has received the new edition of the Roman Missal, which contains the texts and liturgical prayers approved for use in the Mass.

Cardinal Jorge Medina Estevez, the prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, presented the new Missal to the Pope at a private audience on March. The cardinal will introduce the Missal to the press in Rome later this week.

The new Roman Missal-- the third "editio typica," or authoritative edition, to be produced since Vatican II-- is used as the basis for translations into other languages. The text had been approved by the Pope as early as January 2000, and last year a 100-page "General Introduction" was unveiled. The final printing of the Missal was reportedly delayed by complications involved in the typesetting for Gregorian chants included in the volume.
