Pope announces review of liturgical translations

According to the current issue of 'The Tablet' a review of Vatican guidelines on liturgical translations from Latin to other languages has been announced by Pope Francis, raising hopes that the unpopular 2011 English version of the Roman Missal could be revised.

A number of bishops' conferences have been unhappy with the translations ordered under the Liturgiam Authenticam guidelines of 2001.

Was there ever a word of unease or complaint from the Irish bihsops' conference? 

Congratulations to the Germans for saying no,

If a new Missal is produced who will pay? And what a waste of money to have produced the 2011 version.

But it's always easy to spend other people's money.
