The "New Translation"

A conversation I worry would be common among Catholics:

“So…what do you think about the changes in the Mass that are coming soon?”
“What changes?”
“You know…the new translation…?”
“Translation of what?”
“Ummm…well, have you heard about the third edition of the Roman Missal…?”
“No, but I heard something about a new Sacramentary.”

But the USCCB wants us to know that:

“The entire Church in the United States has been blessed with this opportunity to deepen its understanding of the Sacred Liturgy, and to appreciate its meaning and importance in our lives. Parishes should now be in the planning process for the implementation, with a goal toward executing that plan in the coming months.  The parish’s leadership and various sectors of the parish community should be catechized to receive the new translation.  Musicians and parishioners alike should soon be learning the various new and revised musical settings of the Order of Mass.”
