On the First Sunday of Advent, 27 November 2011, Catholics in the English-speaking world will begin to use the new translation of the Third Edition of the Roman Missal according to the Extraordinary Form. Most of the changes affect the priest, but there are some new parts for the people, too. In your pew at church, you will find a card with the new responses. Little by little, we will learn these new responses. The Ordinary of the Mass, those parts of the Mass that do not change, will be slightly different. To help you learn some of the music for the Ordinary of the Mass, check out these new videos and sing along!
