New Translation

The new translation of the Roman Missal provides an opportunity for parishes and communities across England and Wales to deepen their understanding of the Mass. For Catholics the Mass is at the heart of our faith and the words we use and how we celebrate express and shape what we believe.

From the beginning of September 2011 parishes in England and Wales began to use the new translation of the Order of Mass. For more information, please see 


Some of the words used in the new translation of the Mass may be unfamiliar to some of us. The following definitions may help to increase our understanding of the rich theology that underlies these texts.

Ineffable:  That which cannot be conceived or expressed fully (see 1 Cor 2:6-9).  One cannot, for example, adequately describe in concepts and words the mystery of the Trinity or the mystery of the Incarnation.

Infusion:  The Holy Spirit is poured into the hearts and souls of believers, and so they are filled, or infused, with grace.

Intercessor:  One who makes a petition on behalf of others.  Our unique intercessor is Jesus Christ, who intercedes on our behalf with the Father (see Rom 8:34).  The priest at Mass acting in the person of Christ intercedes on behalf of the whole Church
