What is Good Liturgical Language?

Maurice Taylor

Maurice Taylor asks his question from the viewpoint of one standing in the Roman Catholic tradition, notes the work of the International Commission for English in the Liturgy (ICEL) and points to difficulties stemming from a renewed Vatican requirement for strict faithfulness to Latin originals and the sometimes conflicting requirements of good English designed to be read aloud. Some examples of earlier and later translations and of original texts in English are given.
