RSV Lectionary: 2 Volume Set
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.
