Found in (re)Translation?

A recent quotation from Rocco Palmo:
In a clear show of support for the ongoing English re-translation of the Missale Romanum, the Holy See has granted its recognitio (confirmation) to the first and most significant section of the re-rendered Mass texts, which had been approved by each of the nine Anglophone episcopal conferences in late 2006.
The entire text can be accessed in PDF HERE.

It's well worth looking at.
