From a reader:
Dear Fr Z, I’ve just been to Mass, using the new translation for the first time. [hmmm] I was looking forward to the Confiteor, but our priest left it out. Was that because it was a weekday? I thought from now on the Confiteor was going to be a part of the ceremony.
There is indeed a new translation of the Confiteor in the new, corrected translation. However, in the Ordinary Form, the use of the Confiteor is included in just one version of the “penitential rite” of Mass. In other words, there are legitimate penitential rites in the Ordinary Form which don’t include the Confiteor.
Another issue is whether or not the new, corrected translation should have been used. In some places the new translation of the Order of Mass will begin in September, with the whole translation on the 1st Sunday of Advent at the end of November.
That said, I will post something about the new Confiteor elsewhere very soon.
