Advent 1 resources

New Zealand Roman Catholics are this Advent Sunday moving to the people’s responses of the new English Mass translation. Some resources are here. The priests will continue to use mostly the current English Mass translation. I do not think anyone else is doing this? So this makes Kiwi liturgical history. On Saturday I will put up a blog post with the intention of providing the opportunity for Kiwis to give their reaction and comments to using the actual texts in context. One irony, of course, is that the significantly altered Gloria will not be used 🙂
