Pope to English Mass commission: You have “helped to foster the Church's unity”

2013-10-18

The Pope greeted the members of the International Commission on English in the Liturgy, or ICEL, the group that oversees the translation of liturgical texts, like the Mass, into English. He told them their work has "helped to foster the Churchs unity in faith and sacramental communion.”   

The international group celebrated its 50th anniversary. Its creation was a direct result of the Second Vatican Council, which allowed translations of the Mass from Latin to the languages spoken across the world. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"ICEL was one of the the signs of the spirit of episcopal collegiality, which found expression in the Council's Dogmatic Constitution on the Church.” 

The Pope went on to say that, thanks to the commission's work, they have helped "countless Catholics” in understanding their faith, and renewing the Church's missionary outreach. 

He concluded his speech by urging the commission to continue embracing the Church's diversity.
