New Missal 2012,
This review is from: CTS New Sunday Missal - Presentation Edition: People's Edition with New Translation of the Mass (Missal Sunday) (Hardcover)Well made and presented it will last for years as long as they leave the words alone. I am not sure about the box it's for the bin I think!

With the lectionary due for upgrade in the coming years, you will be lucky if you get more than 5 years out of this missal! The Jerusalem Bible is due to be replaced with the New Revised Standard Version. Now, you might ask, why didn't they change the lectionary at the same time as the Mass translation? Well, that would make too much sense!

The Bishops wanted to publish the new edition of the Lectionary with the new translation of the Roman Missal. However, the copyright holders of the NRSV held up the project over copyright matters.
Latest confrmed news is that the NRSV is out (finally). The new Lectionary might be based on the ESV instead. How long that would take is anybody's guess, but 6 years is the minimal expectation for those involved in the project. Afterall, the ESV has never been approved as a Catholic Bible at the moment, and Rome will probably go through the translation with a fine comb. We'd be lucky if we get a new lectionary in 10 years I think.

Thanks for your comment. ESV is a pretty good translation, very like the RSV in my opinion.
