Lectionary is based on the new, Second Catholic Edition of the Revised Standard
Version of the Bible, which replaces archaisms (such as "thee" and
"thou") and uses standard English. The RSV Lectionary text has been
reviewed and recognized by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline
of the Sacraments to be in conformity with Liturgiam Authenticam, the Holy See's
recent norms for biblical and liturgical translations. In fact, this Lectionary
is the only English-language lectionary presently recognized as conforming to
Liturgiam Authenticam. It is also the only English-language lectionary whose
text is identical to that found in a published edition of the Bible . The new
RSV Lectionary has been approved for use in the Antilles Bishops Conference.
