New French-language liturgical translation of the Bible on sale soon from CCCB Publications

Thursday, November 14 2013

La_Bible_liturgiqueThe Canadian edition of La Bible, Traduction officielle liturgique, will be available by the end of this November. The new translation has been published in France by Fleurus-Mame, with a special soft cover version for Canada issued by CCCB Publications. The translation work took 17 years and involved 70 exegetes, biblical scholars and linguists, working in collaboration with the world’s French-language Episcopal Conferences, including the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB).  Father Henri Delhougne, O.S.B., a monk from Clervaux Abbey in Luxembourg, coordinated the international project. The Bible liturgique has been approved by the Bishops of all French-speaking countries, including Canada, and received the recognitio of the Holy See.

La Bible, traduction officielle liturgique, is the first complete French-language translation officially by the Catholic Church. This translation will gradually become part of Roman Catholic liturgies as the French-language Lectionaries are revised.

Vivre_et_Clbrer-Bible_liturgiqueThe CCCB French Sector National Liturgy Office has published a special issue of its periodical Vivre et célébrer to feature this unique Bible liturgique.
