Has this been discussed? I took two workshops on the revised Third Edition Roman Missal last weekend. The changes are small, but significant - it's a real shame that the USCCB has decreed that they cannot be implemented over a period of time, that we must wait until 11/27 and then change it ALL. People are going to be confused and upset, if there is no catechesis on these changes from the pulpit (this is being strongly encouraged, but you KNOW not all priests are going to do it). Heck, you should have heard the heated discussions during the keynote address and workshops alone!
In other countries, parishes plan to introduce the changes one or two at a time, in the weeks leading up to Advent. I think this is the proper way to do it, and I'm really disappointed in the US Catholic Bishops for being so hard-headed.
The bishops in Ireland and Australia are flat-out refusing to implement the revised Missal.
I'm glad I took these workshops, because I gained a much better understanding of the reasons for the changes; however, the general consensus amongst the participants (priests, deacons, non-ordained religious, lay ministers, and general laity from all over my diocese) seems to be that, even after ten years of working at this thing, Rome still didn't get it quite right. I agree with that assessment.
You can find lots of good info here.

Most of the liturgical music will have to be changed, as well. It's gonna be a bumpy ride. I sure hope we don't lose even more people over this.
Let's discuss ...
