That’s right, it’s a two-fer! The next TWO installments of my Roman Missal articles are now available. Here’s the scoop:
As you probably already know, I am co-authoring (with D. Todd Williamson, Director of the Office for Divine Worship, Archdiocese of Chicago) a series of ten articles for Loyola Press on the new Roman Missal. These articles will provide you with what you need to know to better understand the changes when we implement the 3rd Edition of the Roman Missal in Advent, 2011. I ll point you to these articles weekly over the next several weeks as they are posted.
Articles 8 & 9 are now available:
New Roman Missal, Article 1: Changes Are Coming
New Roman Missal, Article 2: The Words We Use at Mass
New Roman Missal, Article 3: Something Old, Something New
New Roman Missal, Article 4: Lost (and Found) in Translation
New Roman Missal, Article 5: Characteristics of the New Text
New Roman Missal, Article 6: Give it To Me Straight (Part 1)
New Roman Missal, Article 7: Give it To Me Straight (Part II)
New Roman Missal, Article 8: Give it To Me Straight (Part III)
New Roman Missal, Article 9: Give it To Me Straight (Part IV)
Don’t forget to check out the recording of my Webinar on the Roman Missal Changes and my PDF of helpful resources! Have a great weekend everyone!
Joe, your books and your resourcefulness helps a lot,in digging facts and new ideas in catechism and evangelization ministry.
I have told you via e-mail before how much I have appreciated your books, Bible Blueprint and Catechists Toolbox. I am using both and people are really “digging” them (stayed with the construction analogy). Just received Well Built Faith and am thinking of it as a gift to RCIA participants at the beginning of the year.
Have to say again, Bible Blueprint has become my go to resource for people who don’t know much about the Bible but want to start reading and learning and growing. Really gives them a reliable Catholic guide to the Bible and sets it in it’s proper context. It is the book I would write if I could write as well as you and had 25 years experience as a DRE , instead of just 2. You have saved me a lot of work. Thank you!
Mike Haigerty, DRE, St. Francis of Assisi Newman Center, Muncie, IN
Mike, your feedback means a lot to me and is very affirming. I know the challenges that DREs face and I’m happy that I can provide some resources to assist you in your endeavors. Keep up the great work!
Have you thought about or do you have a plan of how you will introduce the new Roman Missal and Mass changes to your 4th graders..or elementary young people?
Hi Barb. That’s next on my agenda. I’m planning to gather a few local DREs together and brainstorm effective ways to present the changes to various age groups. Stay tuned! 🙂
Will you be selling a DVD version of your webinar? It would provide a good basis for an adult class on the New Roman Missal for the parish. We do not have the technology to show online things to a group. Thanks.
Hi Virginia, At present, there are no plans to offer the webinar as a DVD. Send me an email at Joe@catechistsjourney.com and we can talk about the possibility of me sending you the PowerPoint presentation.
