The Missale Romanum, revised by decree of the Second Vatican Council and published by authority of Pope Paul VI in 1970, was translated into English by the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) and submitted to the bishops’ conferences of the English-speaking world in 1973. Since then, a second typical edition of the Latin book with minor emendations and additions was published by the Apostolic See in 1975. In addition numerous other ritual books, directories, and instructions have been issued which supplement or modify the contents of the Missal, for instance, the Directory for Masses with Children (1973) and the second edition of the Ordo Lectionum Missae (1981).

Both the mandate given by the conferences of bishops in 1964 and the Apostolic See’s Instruction on the Translation of Liturgical Texts (1969) gave ICEL the duty of revising all its translations after a suitable period of use and of supplementing the translations from the Latin with additional texts newly composed in English. Accordingly, after formal consultations with all the bishops and dioceses of the English-speaking world in 1982 and 1986, ICEL undertook the work of revising the 1973 translation in the light of extended use, of supplementing it with new compositions in the English language, and of arranging and presenting its contents in a more pastorally useful form. This revised and expanded edition, approved by the respective conferences of bishops and confirmed by the Apostolic See, is now issued in two volumes as The Roman Missal: The Sacramentary.
