I just recently found out that the Catholic Churches of Canada had adopted the New Revised Standard Version as the liturgical Bible simply because they had already created books that used the translation.
Unlike the United States, that actually use a Catholic Bible, when will Canadian Catholic Bishops choose a more faithful bible, such as the RSV-CE or even a DRV? I’m all up for those two translations, and it will not be likely that I will buy myself a NRSV.
I want a Bible that matches the one of the Canadian liturgy, which I can memorise passages from, and enjoy in reading and preaching…
I really do hope that they will change it soon enough; I am still excited over the new revision for the Novus Ordo!
Any other Canadian Catholics concerned over this? :S
