Last month, during the ad limina visit of the bishops to the Vatican, Bishop Philip Egan of Portsmouth tweeted about an “inspiring” meeting with Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship (CDW), and the CDW secretary, Archbishop Arthur Roche. “It was inspiring listening to Cardinal Sarah this morning and Archbishop Roche,” he said. “It looks as if we might have a draft of the new ESV [English Standard Version] lectionary as early as next month.”
When the new translation of the Missal was introduced in 2011, the lectionary and the versions of Scripture authorised for use remained the same: the Revised Standard Version and the Jerusalem Bible. However, a new lectionary has been in preparation for some time and the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has been considering a switch to the English Standard Version.
The ESV translation, which emphasises word-for-word accuracy rather than “dynamic equivalence”, was produced by a team of evangelical scholars and first published in 2001.

The Archdiocese of Cardiff was the host for the National Conference of ACTA [A Call to Action] on Saturday 20th October 2018. It was held at St David’s RC Sixth Form College. The theme for the Conference, “It will always be Pentecost in the Church”, refers to a sermon of St. Oscar Romero in which he called for a process of continuous spiritual renewal. The Church needs to be open to the Spirit, to read the signs of the times and respond to the new challenges of the age.
