It's getting easier with each week, I still catch myself saying "and also with you"... And it's going to take a long time to get used to the new creed, all of that new language throws me off and I can't even pronounce constantulation (I know I'm misspelling it here...) yet, Lol!

It wasn't much better this last week. I would love to figure out the creed and not have to feel like I need to have the new words right in front of me. I think I'm OK with the whole "and with your spirit."

I live in Germany, so it should be interesting when I go home to visit. Thanks to whoever posted that PDF link from Loyola Press I saw around here somewhere.

Raised Catholic, I think I'll still always hear the old responses in my head. Lol. But at least the change means I pretty much just literally translate the responses I've learned in Germany - they've been saying "And with your spirit" for years. ;-)

THat's the reason for the new translastion--to bring English speaking Catholics closer to the rest of the world.
I'm in Germany too, although I attend a military chapel, so Mass is in English. And, we have a lot of Germans who prefer to hear Mass in English so they go to our Mass.
Where in Germany are you?

Yay! Someone else in Germany! We cant be too far because I'm in the formerly British occupied area: North Rhine Westphalia, ca. 10 minutes from Dutch border. Münster is the closest 'large' city to me.
