Vatican Rejects ICEL's Translation of the Rite of OrdinationOneo f the most vociferous criticisms of the new Order of Mass is the quality and faithfulness of its English translation prepared by the International Committee for English in the Liturgy (ICEL). This article sets out a letter and several important criticisms by Cardinal Medina Estevez (head of the Vatican Congregation responsible for the Liturgy) of ICEL's 1996 translation of the new rite of Ordination for Bishops, Priests and Deacons. This will give hope to those who look forward to the day when the English-speaking world will have a correct and faithful translation of the Holy Mass.
