  • This Resource provides 5 Pathways for exploring the Eucharist.

    Pathway One: EXPLORING THE MASS
    There are three sub-sections:

    SCRIPTURAL FOUNDATIONS
    This section provides the texts of The Last Supper, Passion and Death, Resurrection, Emmaus, and Ascension which are presented in a visually reflective manner, both in video and illustrative formats.

    EVOLUTION OF THE MASS
    An historical timeline presents the developments in liturgy since the celebration of the first Eucharist.

    THEOLOGICAL REFLECTIONS
    Six video clips featuring expert theological insights are accompanied by texts drawn from two of the five foundational essays, Theological Reflections and Living a Eucharistic Life


    Pathway Two: RECEIVING THIS ENGLISH TRANSLATION
    There are four subsections in this pathway:

    THE TRANSLATORS TASK
    This sub-section provides the background and principles of translation. Eight video clips provide expert commentary from the interviewees who explore topics such as New Guidelines, Importance of Words, The New Lingua Franca, and Previous Translations.

    ISSUES OF TRANSLATION
    The process of developing the new English Translation is explored in this subsection, through an examination of the Role of ICEL, The Review Process, and the Translation Experience. The intentions of the translators are explored through five video clips on the following themes: Renewed Focus on Scripture, Standard English, Inclusive Language, Singing the Mass, and Silence.

    In translating the Third Latin edition of the Roman Missal into English, the translators have been very conscious of clearly identifying and recovering the rich treasury drawn from Scripture. There are 43 Orations which are accompanied by the appropriate passage of Scripture. They are presented in a visually pleasing format.

    CHANGES TO THE TEXT
    Each of the changes to the Missal texts is treated individually in this sub-section in the context of the structure of the liturgy. The 1973 and 2010 translations are presented together on screen to make the changes clear. Explanatory commentary in the form of video and text accompanies each of the new texts.

    CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES
    This sub-section presents various issues the translators had to address in making the translations as accurate as possible. Here the translators can be heard speaking about these insights as well as the difficulties they encountered during the process.
