The Holy See has approved the Third Edition of the Roman Missal. The USCCB has a dedicated a website to help the faithful prepare for the coming changes. http://usccb.org/romanmissal
Pope John Paul II announced a revised version of the Missale Romanum during the Jubilee Year 2000. Among other things, the revised edition of the Missale Romanum contains prayers for the observances of recently canonized saints, additional prefaces for the Eucharistic Prayers, additional Votive Masses and Masses and Prayers for Various Needs and Intentions, and some updated and revised rubrics (instructions) for the celebration of the Mass. The English translation of the Roman Missal will also include updated translations of existing prayers, including some of the well–known responses and acclamations of the people. Examples of the coming changes can be found here http://usccb.org/romanmissal/examples.shtml
