Lord I am not worthy as the priest invites us to receive Holy Communion, he will say Behold rather than this is, the Lamb of God. Behold means to look at and is our invitation to adore Christ who we are about to receive in Holy Communion. We are used to saying Lord I am not worthy to receive you This will change to: Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed. This is almost exactly what the Roman Centurion said when he came and begged Jesus to heal his servant. When Jesus says he will come to the Centurions house, the man knows that Jesus doesnt need to do that, that just his word will be enough. The Centurion says: Lord I am not worthy to have you come under my roof, but only say the word and my servant will be healed. Our new reply changes only one word of the Centurions speech my servant becomes my soul will be healed. NEW TRANSLATION: We are now using the new Mass responses and Eucharistic Prayers at Weekday Mass. Today at Sunday Mass we will start using the new I Confess and Gloria. From the first weekend in September we will use the new translation at all Masses.
