Tidings of Great Joy

Thanks to a tip from Jeffrey Tucker and the Chant Cafe, here are some samplings of things to come when the revised Roman Missal comes to a parish near you on November 27, 2011:

Missal Proper of Time (US)

Here is a sampling of the Collect for Ash Wednesday:

Grant, O Lord, that we may begin with holy fasting
this campaign of Christian service,
so that, as we take up battle against spiritual evils,
we may be armed with weapons of self-restraint.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Note the richness and the beauty of the new language.  We are reminded in this Collect that we must do battle against spiritual evils. 

More will follow in the coming days and weeks.
