From Father Doug The Roman Missal, Part III


On the weekend of November 26 and 27, the first Sunday of Advent, we will be implementing a new translation to be used in our liturgical celebrations. …


While the structure and the essence of the Mass remain unchanged, some words will be different. The last article took us from the beginning of the Liturgy of the Word to the Creed. This article will start with the Creed and continue with a description of responsorial changes to the Liturgy of the Eucharist. …


You will note changes to the wording of the Nicene Creed after the homily. Last week I explained the changing of the words “we believe…” to “I believe…” in unison with each other. I will now present other re-translations in the Creed. The current words “…the Only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father…begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father” will be retranslated to say: “…the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages…begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father…”. The meaning remains the same with different words. Likewise “…He came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit He was born of the Virgin Mary…” will be retranslated “…He came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary…” again, different words expressing the same reality of faith. There are other subtle changes: the current words, “…He suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day He rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures…” will become, “…He suffered death and was buried and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…”. The remaining changes involve using the word “adored” rather “worshipped”; the use of the stronger words “I confess…” rather than “we acknowledge…;” and the words “I look forward to the resurrection…” rather than “We look for the resurrection…” …


As the liturgy of the Eucharist begins, the response to the invitation to prayer adds the adjective holy, specifically, “…and for the good of all His Church” will become “…for the good of all His holy Church.” As noted in the liturgy of the Word, the response to “The Lord be with you,” will consistently remain “And with your spirit.” The last words of the preface dialogue will change from “It is right to give Him thanks and praise” to the much simpler “It is right and just.” …


After the elevation of the Eucharist, instead of saying “Let us proclaim the mystery of faith”, the priest will simply say, “The mystery of faith.” The commonly-used response, “Christ has died…” will no longer be used. There will be three options: ( a) “We proclaim your Death, O Lord, and profess your Resurrection until you come again,” (b) “When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup, we proclaim your death, O Lord, until you come again,” or (c)” Save us, Savior of the world, for by your Cross and Resurrection, you have set us free.” …


The last significant change involving the assembly will be the invitation to Communion prayer. When the revised translation is implemented, the priest will say, “Behold the Lamb of God; behold Him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb.” The congregation’s response will more closely echo the words of the Roman centurion in Matthew 8:8 (cf Luke 7:6), “Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.” Many other phrases and words have changed in the priest’s prayers, but the meanings remain the same with this more literal translation from the Latin. You will hear different adjectives and more ornate and formal language – words like “chalice” instead of “cup.” …


Allow level-headedness to prevail – this is neither the greatest nor the worst thing that has happened; the revised translation simply reflects the organic process of growth and change in language and subtleties. This is complicated when words from an ancient extinct language are translated into a dynamic living language like English. Words may change, but the Eucharistic sacrifice and our worship remain the same. I, for one, became fond of our current prayers and was able to take them as my own – but the reality is that they are not my own, the words are those of Christ Jesus’ Church – from whose Tradition and succession all Eucharistic activity and priestly authority are rooted. We may become tongue-tied as we learn these new words together, but we will become accustomed to them and learn to love them as we continue to celebrate our worship and nourish our faith. On this side of God’s kingdom, the constant of our lives is change, but no matter how much words are modified or reinterpreted, the perfect sacrifice that Jesus offered for our salvation and our participation will never change.

Communion for the Homebound...When we come together to pray at our Eucharistic liturgy, we do not forget the members of our community who are unable to be with us because of ill health. We remember them in our prayer, and we wish to include them in our Holy Communion. Members of our community bring the Blessed Sacrament to them to comfort them and to unite them with us in the Eucharist. We are not always aware of those who have this need. Please call the Parish Office to let us know if you or a member of your family would like to have Holy Communion brought to them. That way we can schedule a time for our ministers to visit and bring the Sacrament. Hospital, Nursing Home, Homebound Visits...Churches are no longer notified by hospitals or nursing homes when a parishioner is admitted unless the family has requested it. If you or a family member are homebound, hospitalized or in a nursing home and would like a visit from a member of the pastoral ministry staff, please call Jean Rief in the parish office.

Faith Formation

A HUGE thank you to Kathy Carlson, Nina Greenwood, Nancy Nelson, Marty O’Keefe and Rich VanSloun for your HOURS of help with the Water Wars game at AngelFest last weekend! It took some convincing, but we finally got Fr. Doug and Dcn. Nick to give it a try! It was a little cooler than we had hoped, but we still had a great time launching balloons at each other!

Education for the Mind~Body~Spirit It was great to see all your smiling faces at AngelFest last weekend. Many thanks to parents, parishioners, alumni and staff for your continued support in making this a fun, family event! Don’t forget that children from our school are continuing to collect donations for our Rake-a-thon service project. We appreciate your generosity toward our school. Join us next Sunday, October 9th at the Knights of Columbus Pancake Breakfast in the school gym from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

To see more water wars pictures go to the Guardian Angels Facebook page!

Can’t help on Wednesday Nights, but feel called to help the faith formation programs in some other way? We are in need of more clerical help during the week or evenings. Mary Kingsbury is an AMAZING volunteer administrative assistant for Emily Klinker, Director of Faith Formation, but as our programs grow so does the need for more help. Please contact either Emily Klinker or Mary Kingsbury if you can help this important ministry continue to grow!

Are you Tech Savvy? If so...Guardian Angels Faith Formation has two technology needs that you could help with. *The first is video editing our weekly opening prayer. As you may know our entire Wednesday Evening Program prays together via video. In the years past Eric Crowell has done the editing for this, he has since left GA and is now working at the University of Minnesota. The school technology teacher has offered to train anyone interested in being a part of this much needed ministry! *Our second need is for the FF portion of the website! We need a face lift, some sprucing up, a little TLC! Once it is updated, we would then need someone to maintain the site. If either of these technology ministries interests you, or if you have an idea of someone I could ask, please contact Emily Klinker at 952-227-4007.

Guardian Angels School will host a Town Hall this Thursday, October 6th at 6:30 p.m. in St. Francis Hall. This is the first of three Town Hall meeting to be held throughout the school year. The purpose of this first town hall is to notify parents and parishioners of the various committees, activities and opportunities available to get involved with your school. There will be an open forum to discuss the school initiatives for the year and ask questions. The band program at Guardian Angels school is growing! We need your help! Do you have a band instrument you are no longer using? Is it taking up space in your closet or attic? We have a great home for your used instruments!

We need donated instruments in any condition to help our students make a joyful noise. Please contact Helen Suhr, music director at Guardian Angels School to make your donation today. 952-227-4035 (work) 952-856-4198 (home) Thank you!

Por el Padre Doug El Misal Romano, Parte III El fin de semana de Noviembre 26 y 27, el primer Domingo de Adviento, implementaremos la nueva traduccion para ser usada el nuestras celebraciones liturgicas. Mientras que la escensia y estructura de la Misa continua igual, algunas palabras seran diferentes. El ultimo articulo fue tomado desde el principio de la Liturgia de la palabra, al Credo. Este articulo comenzara a partir del Credo y continuara con la descripcion de los cambios responsoriales de la Liturgia de la Eucaristia. Usted notara salgunos cambios en las palabras del credo despues de la homiia. La semana pasada , yo explique los cambios en las palabras “Creemos” a “Yo creo”, unidas en una sola. Yo no presentare otra traduccion en el Credo. Las palabras actuales “…el unico Hijo de Dios, engendrado, no creado, un solo Dios Verdadero en union del Padre” sera traducido para decir…” Hijo unico de Dios, nacido del Padre antes de todos los siglos,…engendrado, no creado, con susbtancial al Padre…” El significado dice lo mismo solo con diferentes palabras. De la misma manera”…el bajo del cielo: con el poder del Espiritu Santo El nacio de la Virgen Maria…”, traduciremos…”El bajo del cielo, y por obra del Espiritu santo, se encarno de la Virgen Maria…” otras vez, diferentes palabras, expresando la misma realidad de Fe. Tambien hay otros cambios: las palabras actuales, “…El sufrio, murio y fue sepultado. En el tercer dia El resucito de acuerdo a las Escrituras…” comenzara a ser, “…El sufrio, murio y fue sepultado y resucito de Nuevo al tercer de acuerdo a l as Escrituras…” Las palabras que faltan involucran el uso de la palabra “adoro” en lugar de “dar culto”; el uso de las palabras fuertes como “Yo confieso…” en lugar de “Aceptamos”…”; y las palabras, “espero la resureccion…” en lugar de “Esperamos la resureccion…” Cuando la Liturgia de la eucaristia comienza, la respuesta de la invitacion para orar, agrega el adjetivo Santa, especificamente,”..y por el bien se toda Su Iglesia”…sera “…Por el bien de toda su Santa Iglesia.” Como lo notamos en la Liturgia de la Palabra, la respuesta a las palabras “El Señor este contigo”, continuara siendo “Y con tu espiritu.” Las ultimas palabras del dialogo del prefasio sera cambiado de “ es correcto darle gracias y alabralo” a algo mas simple. “ Es justo y necesario” Despues de la elevacion de la Eucaristia, en lugar de decir “ Proclamemos el misterio de nuestra Fe”, el sacerdote dira simplemente ..”El misterio de Fe”, la comunidad estaba respondiendo “Cristo ha muerto…”, ya no se utilizara. Habra tres opciones: a) “Proclamamos tu muerte , oh Señor y proclamamos tu Resureccion hasta que vuelvas,” b) Cuando comemos este pan y bebemos este caliz, proclamamos tu muerte, oh Señor hasta que vuelvas, “ o c) Salvanos, Salvador del mundo, que por t u cruz y resureccion no has vuelto salvos.” El ultimo cambio significativo a que se invitara a la asamblea sera la oracion de la Comunion. Cuando sea revisada la traduccion, el sacerdote dira, “Contemplemos el Cordero de Dios, contemplemos a quien quita el pecado del mundo. Benditos aquellos que son invitados ala cena del Cordero.” La respuesta de la congregacion sera muy cercana a la del centurion romano en Mateo 8:8 (cf Lucas 7-6) , “ Señor, yo no soy digno de que entres en mi casa, pero di solo una palabra y mi alma quedara sana.” Muchas otras frases y palabras se han cambiado en las oraciones del sacerdote, pero los significados continuan siendo los mismos literalmente traducidos del latin. Ustedes escucharan adjetivos diferentes y un lenguaje mas adornado y formal – palabras como “caliz” en lugar de “copa”. Un nivel mas alto predominara – esta no es la mejor o la peor cosa que ha sucedido: la revision de la traduccion simplemente refleja un proceso organico de crecimiento y cambios en el lenguaje y subtitulos. Esto es algo complicado cuando las palabras en un idioma ya extinto, se traducen a un idioma mas dinamico como el ingles. Las palabras quiza cambien, pero el sacrificio de la Eucaristia continua siendo el mismo. Yo, por ejemplo, comence a encontrarme con nuestras oraciones actuales y las tome como mias propias, pero la realidad es que estas no son realmente mias, las palabras son de la Iglesia de Cristo Jesus, de quien la tradicion y suscesion de la actividad de la Eucaristia y autoridades sacerdotales tienen sus raices. Quiza nuestras lenguas se traven al pronunciar estas palabras juntos, pero nos acostumbraremos a ellas y mientras continuamos haciendo la celebracion de nuestra Fe. En este lado del reino de Dios, la constante de nuestras vidas cambia, pero no importa cuandas palabras puedan ser modificadas o reinterpretadas, el sacrificio perfecto de Jesus que El ofrecio por nosotros por nuestra salvacion, nunca cambiara.

Mondays, Beginning October 3, 5:30–7:30pm, at Pax Christi in Eden Prairie Losing someone we love is one of life’s most challenging passages. Learning about this process of grief, along with sharing our experience in a caring, supportive, and confidential setting, helps us to cope and leads to personal growth and healing. The Southwest Grief Coalition works ogether to provide support and education for those who are grieving and will begin its six-week fall series, Living and Growing Through Loss. The evening will include a light meal, followed by a speaker, and then small group supportive sessions specific to the type of loss. Participants are welcome to attend any or all of the speaker presentations; small group support sessions are closed to new members after the second week. There is no cost to participate in Living and Growing Through Loss and no church affiliation is required. A light supper is provided each evening.

Congratulations to Paul DiFuccia! On September 26th, Paul was one of 29 competitors, all winners of the Macy's regional spelling bees to compete in New York City. He cruised through 10 rounds of competition conquering words like perseverance, insurmountable, discombobulate, rambunctious, and extraterrestrial. Then in the 11th round, with only 7 spellers remaining, 'chicanery' took him out. We are proud of Paul’s talents and accomplishments. Way to go!
