Patch Poll: Change to Catholic Mass?

"Lord I am not worthy to receive you but only say the word and I shall be healed."

If you've been accustomed to saying this during Mass, you may find yourself tongue-tied starting Nov. 27, when instead, you'll be expected to respond with the following before receiving the Eucharist:

"Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed."

A number of changes such as this will take effect beginning the first Sunday of Advent as Catholic churches across the country adopt the Third Edition of the Roman Missal, which has updated translations of existing prayers, including some of the well-known responses and acclamations of the people.

For a guide to the changes check out this helpful blog from the Washington Post.
