For almost fifty years, Catholic parishes have prayed the Mass in English. After years of planning and preparation, a new edition of The Roman Missal will change many of the familiar words of the prayers of the Mass.

While change is never easy, it does provide an opportunity. Now is the time to revisit the meaning of the Mass, to understand it more deeply, and to reflect on what within it remains eternal. Developed by a parish to serve their community and the broader church, Lord, Teach Us to Pray provides a framework for valuable, communal reflection not only on the changes but on the meaning and purpose of the Mass.

Written and filmed by lay and ordained Catholic parish leaders who understand the challenge and opportunity of the moment, Lord, Teach Us to Pray will help smooth the transition to the revised prayer texts of The Roman Missal, Third Edition. In 25 brief segments, Lord, Teach Us to Pray introduces and explains the changes of The Roman Missal, Third Edition by focusing on the meaning of each part of the Mass. Thoughtful discussion questions in an enclosed booklet enhance and deepen the viewing experience. This clear, easy-to-understand, and simple-to-implement approach helps people reflect on the significance of the Mass for the community as a whole and on what the eucharistic liturgy means to them personally.

Lord, Teach Us To Pray provides a simple way to share sound theological information with individuals or gathered groups such as councils and committees, choirs and lectors, catechists and adult faith sharing groups, and more.
