Roman Missal, Third Edition

Roman Missal Third Edition, New Words: Deeper Meaning, the Same Mass

Welcome to the Diocese of Pueblo’s information page on the third edition of the Roman Missal (formerly, Sacramentary).  The Roman Missal, Third Edition for use in the Dioceses of the United States of America was confirmed by decree of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments on March 26, 2010 (Prot. n. 1464/06/L).  Proper adaptations for the United States were confirmed on July 24, 2010 (Prot. n. 577/10/L).

Sung Parts

At their June 2011 meeting, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and the Bishops Committee on Divine Worship made the decision to allow gradual incorporation of the new sung parts of the mass, with the permission of the Diocesan Bishop. Much concern has arisen about the singing of the Gloria with little to no liturgical use prior to Christmas. The Bishops hope to alleviate this issue by allowing liturgical use of particularly the Gloria, Holy and Memorial Acclamations early.
