On Holy Thursday, 2000, Pope John Paul II approved the revised Institutio Generalis Missalis Romani, popularly known as the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (Pending revised version). The present revision will replace the 1975 edition of the Institutio Generalis and is now available in Latin from the Vatican Press and in an English language study edition from the NCCB Secretariat for the Liturgy. This summary is offered to our readers in order to provide an introduction to some of the new aspects of this important liturgical document.Secretariat for the LiturgyThe Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy is a standing committee of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops (NCCB).
