No Big Shock

Rocco is reporting that the Roman Missal translation has passed

"On the vote for the translation of the Missale Romanum, the ayes were 173, the nays 29.
On the adaptations to the Missale Romanum for the United States, the ayes were 184, the nays 8.
Needing 168 votes to pass, the translation has passed."

No big shock! I think we all expected it to pass and those who didn't weren't thinking realistically. Even those bishop who didn't agree with the changes were tired of arguing against them, especially after Cardinal Arinze's letter which basically stated that they would be rejected by the Holy See.
Now we await the Holy See's acceptance.
