"Bishop Trautman expressed the U.S. bishops' intention to proceed with the preparation of the revised lectionary in the light of the commission's obser- vations," the statement said. It did not say what the observa- tions were. Msgr. Alan F. Detscher, exec- utive director of the NCCB liturgy committee, attended the meeting but declined to provide further details. He said only that the process of reviewing the text in the light of the Vati- can's 1995 translation norms was continuing. Those norms have never been made public. Vatican participants at the meeting included representa- tives from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments. The statement said Bishop Trautman thanked both con- gregations for their work, say- ing the Vatican agencies and the U.S. bishops share the same goal of preparing a Scripture translation that is "faithful to the inspired text and accessible to modern listeners."

The revised NAB lectionary was approved by U.S. bishops in 1992. It was awaiting Vati- can confirmation when the Vat- ican, in 1994, raised objections to the translations used in the revised NAB Book of Psalms and in the New Revised Stan- dard Version of the Bible. Vatican officials found fault with the use of inclusive lan- guage, which has been adopted by U.S. and Canadian bishops to avoid terms that could offend or appear to exclude some read- ers. In practice, this often means replacing nouns and pro- nouns such as "men" with more inclusive terms such as "peo- ple." Vatican officials, however, were concerned that omitting male pronouns in some cases could change the meaning of Scripture. They emphasized a need for fidelity to the original language used by the authors of the Bible.
