In liturgical news this week:
American Catholic bishops have voted to change the 35-year old English translation of the Latin. The emmendations are supposed to return this version to the intent of the original Latin.
The bishops, meeting in Los Angeles, voted 173 to 29 to accept many of the changes to the Mass, a pivotal point in a 10-year struggle that many English-speaking Catholics had dubbed "the liturgy wars."

Meanwhile, the Episcopal Church is tinkering with the lectionary. Namely, they are moving to the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) in Advent, 2010. This is more of a "propoganda liturgy war."
During debate, one deputy noted that she had helped three congregations make a transition to the RCL and “99 percent of the people in the pews never noticed. Living Church Foundation News, 17 June 2006.
How would one notice a shift to the RCL? ("Hey, is this the same Epistle we heard on the second Sunday of Advent two years ago?")
I've decided to start my own
liturgy lectionary war over line from the Living Church article about what to do once "pages 887 through 1001 [of the Book of Common Prayer] became obsolete."
Well, excuse me, but I thought the three-year lectionary only occupied pages 887 through 921 (that's only 34 pages).
I use pages 922-1001 (89 pages) for doodling.
