If you’re attending Mass this weekend, here’s what you need to know:

- The new Mass will first be celebrated at the Saturday vigil, to be followed by Masses on Sunday and thereafter.
- Priests are unlikely to interrupt the Mass with instructions, but instead will encourage congregants before the service begins to follow along to printed materials containing the new text.
- Some familiar Mass songs will change to accommodate the new translations.
- If you’re interested in the reasoning behind any specific word choice, you can read the commentary from the bishops’ conference at their Web site. Click on the ‘commentary’ links below the Mass part.
You can see some of the new language below.
