This is the last post in a series about the New English Translation of the Roman Missal.
In the Concluding Rite there are several new forms of dismissal which are reported to have been written by Pope Benedict XVI himself. These are much more demanding of us. We are not simply dismissed but sent out with a mission to evangelise, through the example of our lives or, subject to our own gifts or talents, some form of ministry.
We have been nourished with the Word of God and the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, now we are sent out on a mission, to evangelise all people.
Further information and resources on the New Translation and much more can be found on the website of the Catholic Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle.
