Out with the old, in with the new!

Well,  we have moved to the new Roman Missal as of Sunday. We have left behind some of the prayers that we have used for a very long time. Some of us have listened to those prayers at our first Holy Communion. And there are some of us that have grown over the years that this change is one among many.

As we usher in a new translation, let's not forget the value of the old. After all, tradition is an important part of the Church, and we would be remiss if there was not an elegy for the old Sacramentary, the prayers of our youth: simple, clean, clear, direct, unadorned, beautiful.

The Bible Geek, Mark Hart, sheds some light on this topic with a clear and concise explanation from LifeTeen. Take a look at the entire video clip if you have some time. It is informative and engaging.
