"It Is Fitting Indeed and Just"

Why do I keep saying this during the Mass?  Ever since the revised translation of the Mass last November, the reply of "It is right to give Him thanks and praise" was replace (appropriately) with "It is right and just"...however, my 1955 Missal has the translation as "It is fitting indeed and just".  And since I read that missal daily, I admit that during the Preface, I unconsciously say "fitting" instead of "right".

How are you doing almost one year after the new translation?  I'd love to read your comments.

Deo Vindice!


  1. I only occasionally attend the vernacular mass as I am an usher at the local traditional mass. Sometimes I still use the "obsolete" responses.

    1. I like that response, the revised one is a lot better than, "it is right to give Him thanks a praise"..that's for sure!
