10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana November; NCCB defers vote on a new Sacramenta By JERRY FILTEAU Catholic News Service cal use, a Spanish-language text for funeral rites and proce- dural rules for dealing with fu- ture segments of the Sacra- mentary. But shortly before the meet- ing Jesuit Father Joseph Fes- sio of Ignatius Press published an article challenging the accu- racy of the English-language 1969 Vatican document that lays out the basic principles for doing such translations. And in an interview broad- cast Nov. 2 on Mother Angel- ica's cable television network, EWTN, the San Francisco Je- suit urged listeners to register their opposition to the use of inclusive language and to other liturgical changes by contact- ing their own bishops and the bishops' Committee on the Liturgy. Bishop Anthony G. Bosco of Greensburg, Pa., asked Auxil- iary Bishop Wilton D. Gregory of Chicago, committee chair- man, about Father Fessio's claims that the English version of "Comme le Prevoit," the 1969 Vatican instruction on translating liturgical texts, is biased and inaccurate. The Vatican issued the in- struction in six languages, with each version adapted to specific translation issues and examples pertinent to that lan- guage. Bishop Gregory said that the International Commission on English in the Liturgy, known as ICEL, had prepared the English draft of the instruc- tion, but the Consilium -- the Vatican agency overseeing liturgical reform -- reviewed the ICEL draft critically and revised and corrected it before WASHINGTON (CNS) -- The National Conference of Catholic Bishops began one of its most massive liturgical up- dating projects in recent years Nov. 15 against a backdrop of a new campaign challenging the whole basis of English liturgy translations made since the Second Vatican Council. The main immediate issue for the U.S. bishops was the first segment of a new transla- tion of Mass prayers used throughout the year. When the whole Sacramentary is com- pleted, it will mark the first major revision in English Mass texts in more than 20 years. They also faced approval of an inclusive-language version of the Grail Psalter for liturgi- Urging return to Liturgy of Hours wenty-foiurth annual Na- tional Meeting of the Federa- tion of Dioc+esan Liturgical Commissions, in Rochester, N.Y., Oct. 14- 18. The yearly gathering of diocesan officials and other persons dedicated to improving the liturgical life of the Catholic Church in the United States is co-sponsored by the Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy of the National Confer- ence of Catholic Bishops. Four major presentations Some Catholics may remem- ber seeing  priest reading his breviary, or praying the Divine Office. Others may be familiar with the monastic practice of rising early for common cele- bration of the Liturgy of the Hours. Such public prayers may soon become better known in the United States. Father William Deering, diocesan director of worship, was among more than 200 peo- ple from around the United States who attended the I i MILLER & MILLER this year dealt with the Liturgy of the Hours -- toward trying to fulfill the Vatican II directive to restore the parish celebration of the morning and evening Liturgy of the Hours. Morning Prayers (Lauds) and Evening Prayers (Vespers) are considered the "hinge Hours" upon which the whole cycle of daily prayer depends.

"Part of the difficulty was that some people were saying the Consilium had nothing to say about" the English-lan- guage version of the instruc- tion, Bishop Gregory said. "But it is de facto a document from the Holy See." He said use of gender-inclu- sive language in liturgy was a leading concern in most of the letters of complaint received by his committee and by individ- ual bishops around the coun- try. Many of those writers seemed unaware that use of in- clusive language for references to people has been an estab- lished, working principle in new liturgy texts since 1978, he said. As examples of liturgical texts already in use that incor- porate inclusive language he cited the Rite of Christian Ini- tiation of Adults, the rite for dedicating churches and the liturgical rites for pastoral care of the sick, for special Masses of the Virgin.
