During this week’s Spring General Meeting of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference, the bishops announced the publication of a new Irish-language edition of the Roman Missal. The following statement was made regarding the publication:
To coincide with Seachtain na Gaeilge (Irish language week), bishops wish to announce the publication later in the year by Veritas, Ireland’s leading publisher of liturgical and Church resources, of an altar edition of the new Roman Missal in Irish — An Leabhar Aifrinn Rómhánach. This is a unique publication, and is hugely significant not only for the Church in Ireland, but for all who cherish our culture and heritage, particularly the Irish language. An Leabhar Aifrinn Rómhánach will serve those who celebrate the liturgy in Irish and will help to preserve the Irish language as a living language for worship. Bishops encouraged priests to purchase a copy for use in their parishes.
