New English Mass Translation Approved by U.S. Bishops

I've been hearing about this for years, but it looks like it's finally coming. There is no dispute about the fact that the English translation of the Mass has been sub-par (if now extremely familiar) since Vatican II. U.S. Bishops voted on it 173-29! I can't help thinking that, in addition to the importance of accuracy and beauty in language, needing to use the book and pay more attention for awhile might be a really good thing for everyone (myself included!).
