Vox Clara to meet: Oremus pro eis

The Vox Clara Committee begins meetings in Rome on Monday.

A prayer for translators
Almighty and merciful God,
who hast poured forth the Holy Spirit abundantly
upon the Church of Thine Only-begotten Son,
vouchsafe, we beseech Thee, inspiration and constancy
to those now laboring with great zeal
in rendering the prayers of the same Holy Church
from Latin into the diverse languages of all nations,
so that we who were estranged by an ancient act of pride
may be able both to offer Thee prayers properly
and being one in heart and mind receive from Thee the means of salvation.

    I am not sure I quite understand the roll and authority the Vox Clara committee has.
    I know they are overseers of vernacular translations, but if something comes up that they find to be a problem, do they have authority to correct it, or is it strictly a veto power, or can they only make recommendations. I have never really been clear on on what they can actually do.

    Good question, Caesar. Also, any news, Father?
