Lectionary and the NABRE

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  At Mass ( the Lectionary) are we still reading from the NAB rather than the revised version?

A:  The lectionary we’re using was approved in 1998. The USCCB website says this about the NABRE:

“Released on March 9, 2011, the New American Bible, Revised Edition (NABRE) is the culmination of nearly 20 years of work by a group of nearly 100 scholars and theologians, including bishops, revisers and editors. The NABRE includes a newly revised translation of the entire Old Testament (including the Book of Psalms) along with the 1986 edition of the New Testament.”
Some emendations to the translation were made in 1998 for the liturgical proclamation from the lectionary.
