In the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article linked in this earlier post, our pastor mentions that he sent a letter to parishioners on the pending changes in the English translation of the Mass. Here is his letter.
Those changes and what lead up to them are also the subject of this Adoremus Bulletin article.
They differ on almost every point, even on history. Father Jurkus portrays a change in approach sprung in 1999 by "Pope John Paul II and, reportedly, a smaller group of Vatican experts...". The Adoremus article notes that "Pope John Paul had called for review and reform of the post-conciliar liturgy in his 1988 apostolic letter Vicesimus Quintus Annus."
