No shock here: New translation is better!

If you still needed an additional reason to justify the feeling that this current English translation of the Roman Missal is superior to the one we lived with for decades, it came today at Mass when the Gospel was read:
"The centurion said in reply, 'Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant shall be healed.'"

Imagine, the words we hear from Scripture are the words that we say just before the Lord enters our body.  Beautiful.
