THE NEW TRANSLATION-The Gloria and the Creed We will also notice some changes in the Gloria and the Creed. In fact, there is not a great deal of change in the new words that we will pray so we will have to be careful we dont slip into the old texts! The first lines of the Gloria itself echo the angels message to the shepherds, announcing the birth of Christ (Luke 2:14).Because of these changes, new music is being written so that we will be able to sing the new translation, too. When it comes to the Creed we will notice the first change immediately I believe, not We believe. We have become used to praying the Creed all together as a parish. The trouble is, when we say we believe it could suggest that between us all we believe everything being said. It is not clear that we all believe everything that is being said. To say I believe makes it quite clear that each one of us believes everything we are saying. (From the National Liturgy Office.)
