Hosts Bob Wurzelbacher and Emily Strand begin an interview with liturgical scholars and priests Fr. Larry Tensi and Fr. Steve Walter. What ensues is a fascinating look at the texts of the Roman Missal that are most altered in the new translation, and thoughts on how they enhance our praying at Mass.

Episode 11 of BTW begins a series on the new responses for the assembly in Mass. Bob and Emily interview Fr. Tim Kallaher, pastor of St. John the Baptist parish (Dry Ridge, Cincinnati), and scholar of the Latin language. In this fascinating and informative episode, Fr. Tim sheds light on the meanings behind "And with your spirit," and breaks down the language of the Confiteor, which inspires a conversation about the so-called "emphasis on sin" in the new translation.
