New Roman Missal - Nicene Creed PDF Print E-mail

Every Sunday we make a solemn profession of our faith by reciting the Nicene Creed. It is a summary of faith expressed by the Councils of Nicaea (325 A.D.) and the Council of Constantinople (381 A.D.). It has been an essential element of the Sunday Liturgy since the Sixth Century. The purpose of this Profession of Faith is to allow the gathered people an opportunity to respond to the Word of God that was proclaimed in the readings. It also calls to mind the great mysteries of our faith that we will celebrate in the Liturgy of the Eucharist. The New translation of the Nicene Creed contains a few new words that will once again challenge us, so it will take a little getting used to before it becomes familiar. One of those words is “consubstantial” which professes that Jesus and the Father are of one substance, One God. Another word that will challenge us in the Creed is “incarnate”; this too reveals that Jesus the Son of God was given a human body through the motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary. You will also notice when we begin the creed we will be using the singular pronoun “I” instead of “We”. This change is calling us to make a personal profess our faith.

Current Translation - Nicene Creed

New Missal Translation - Nicene Creed

  

We believe in  one God, the Father Almighty,

    maker of heaven and earth,

    of all that is seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

        the only Son of God,

        eternally begotten of the Father,

    God from God, Light from Light,

    true God from true God,

    begotten , not made, one in Being

        with the Father.

    Through him all things were made.

    For us men and for our salvation

        he came down from heaven:

        by the power of the Holy Spirit

        he was born of the Virgin Mary,

        and became man.

    For our sake he was crucified

        under Pontius Pilate;

        he suffered, died, and was buried.

    On the third day he rose again

        in fulfillment of the Scriptures;

    he ascended into heaven

        and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

    He will come again in glory

        to judge the living and the dead,

        and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

        the Lord, the giver of life,

        who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

    With the Father and the Son

        he is worshiped and glorified.

    He has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic

        and apostolic Church.

    We acknowledge one baptism

        for the forgiveness of sins.

    We look for the resurrection of the dead,

        and the life of the world to come. 

Amen.

        and I look forward to the resurrection

        of the dead and the life of the world to come.

Amen.
