THREE NEW ENDINGS APPROVED FOR MASS
Catholic News Servicehttp://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/0805330.htm reports the Vatican has approved three alternate phrases for the dismissal at the end of Mass:He said along with "Ite, missa est," the Latin phrase now translated as "The Mass is ended, go in peace," the new options are:
-- "Ite ad Evangelium Domini annuntiandum" (Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord).
-- "Ite in pace, glorificando vita vestra Dominum" (Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life).
-- "Ite in pace" (Go in peace).
So, what about the current common dismissal, "Go in peace to love and serve the Lord." That seems to be all I hear at Mass. Is it contrary to the rubrics?
