Lost in Translation?

A robust and forthright book about the recent past and possible future of mass translations in the Roman Catholic Church is currently gaining attention: Lost in Translation by our colleague in the University of Divinity, Gerald O’Collins. We’re pleased to link here to two good Australian discussions around the book’s concerns, by Tom Elich at Liturgy Brisbane and Andrew Hamilton at Eureka Street:

Rising from the ruins of 2010 Mass translation

ONWARDS TO 1998?

Gerald O’Collins with John Wilkins, Lost in Translation: The English Language and the Catholic Mass is published by Liturgical Press:

Lost in Translation: The English Language and the Catholic Mass

Enjoy the discussion.
