THE NEW TRANSLATION – FOR MANY The translation of Eucharistic prayers in the new Roman Missal being promulgated on November 27 involves some significant changes to the words of consecration of the Precious Blood. The priest will now say "Take this, all of you, and drink from it: for this is the chalice of my Blood, the Blood of the new and eternal covenant; which will be poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins." Some have raised concerns that the words "for many" limit the universal scope of Jesus' saving mission. This is a misunderstanding of the text, for the Church teaches that the Lord gave his life for every human being who has ever lived since the beginning of the world and every human being who will ever live until the end of time. So, if really did Jesus die for everyone, why the change? Well, this new translation is faithful to Jesus' actual words from the Last Supper accounts in the Gospels (see Matthew 26:28). It is also more harmonious with the Latin text of the Mass, which has been used in the liturgy for centuries. Most of all, this new translation points to the reality that, although Jesus died for all, each individual must choose to welcome the gift of salvation in Christ and live according to that grace, so that he or she may be among "the many" that are described in this text. Scripture scholars have observed that Jesus' language at the Last Supper about His Blood being poured out "for many" recalls "the many" that are three times mentioned in Isaiah 53:11‐12. In this prophecy, Isaiah foretold that God one day would send his servant who would make himself "an offering for sin," bearing the sin of "many" and making "many" righteous (Isaiah 53:10‐12). Jesus shows himself to be the figure 108 prophesied by Isaiah, the "suffering servant" who offers his life for the "many." Again, this should not be understood in opposition to the fact that Jesus died "for all" (1 Timothy 2:6). The other prophecies in Isaiah about the Servant of the Lord make clear that he has a mission to announce salvation to all humanity (for example, Isaiah 42:1‐10, 49:6, 52:10). In this context, the expression "the many" can be seen as contrasting the one person who dies with the many who benefit from his atoning sacrifice. NOVEMBER MASSES FOR THE HOLY SOULS The month of November is traditionally dedicated to prayers for the dead. One of the Masses each Wednesday has been reserved for this intention. If you wish to request prayers for deceased members of your family, please fill out the special ALL SOULS ENVELOPE and return it to the Church. Prayer requests will be reserved in a special place in the sanctuary during the month of November.
