The Roman Missal, Third Edition, the ritual text containing prayers and instructions for the celebration of the Mass, is now being prepared for publication. Pope John Paul II announced a revised version of the Missale Romanum during the Jubilee Year 2000. The Roman Missal will be implemented in the United States of America on the First Sunday of Advent, Nov. 27.
