Overview

First published in 1963, the Grail Psalms were adopted worldwide for the Liturgy of the Hours and approved for general liturgical use following the Second Vatican Council; this new translation was approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops on November 11, 2008, and was granted a recognitio by the Vatican's Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments on April 9, 2010. The Psalms are one of the most treasured books of sacred scripture and the unique character of the Grail Psalms is that they incorporate the rhythm of the original Hebrew text and are thus easily set to music. In the wake of the 2001 document Liturgiam authenticam, which called for more literal translations of the scriptures and liturgical texts, the monks of Conception Abbey, under the direction of Abbot Gregory Polan, OSB, undertook the work of a new translation of the Grail Psalms. During the process, they conferred with Vatican and international sources in order to create a version that would meet the requirements of Liturgiam authenticam and be suitable for English speakers throughout the world. The Revised Grail Psalms, designated to be the official English-language Psalter used in future Roman Catholic liturgical books published in the United States and throughout the world, will play an important part in the Church's liturgy for years to come.
